I have also found the Cadillac to have lots of steering.

I found the Cadillac very good for steering. I use it on tracks with lots of turns in the infield.

And what about the clutch springs that you were talking earlier. I was thinking of using the super hard clutch spring, rather than the stock one. Do you think that will help me in any way ??

I'm not sure if this advice helps front grip, but hopefully its the solution without change in springs, tyres, stabilizer. Have you consider to remove the super wide bumper ( meant for lola body ) and only use the small bumper + foam ? The wide bumper limits the front shocks travel under heavy cornering creating understeering effect. The edge of bumper hits the asphalt.

BTW, Do you loss the steering OFF power ( corner entry ), or ON power (corner exit / long sweeper) or both ? I think AFM have great expertise + explanatory solution in that matter.

If you have picture of your car naked will be great so we can look closely.

It will help give better accelleration because the engine needs more RPMs before the clutch engages if everything else stays the same. If the track is loose it may be a little trickier to drive.

The cadillac is a body that should be used on very technical tracks.

I also like to use the Mazda 6, because at first it looks good !, and second it's good for all kind of tracks. That's my opinion !
