John, I also had toe out front 2 degrees and toe in rear 2 degrees. Other than factory stock FW 05T, power on and off steering good with all my settings. All I need to keep up with club champ is slightly pokier/ higher reving engine.

So tune top end first and then bottom end and make sure plenty of smoke and snappy response. My plug was OS #8 and plug was not fouled. The Novarossi carby was a help too as find the factory carby junk to tune.

I was told that a G4 side belt is compatible (see low friction post RC Tech) and Mugen MTX3. I will soon find out as I have bought MTX3 belts I was told that soaking belts in WD40 lubricant for a night or two works as well to lower friction.
