you dont mention any droop settings. everything else looks ok, but id lay down your rear shocks also. standing them up looses side bite, and hardens their operation a bit. also an easy way to look at your droop, is to set your ride hieght first, then for the front set your ride hight guage, to add a further 2mm of hieght for the front and 4mm for the rear. you adjust the droop screws for this, not the shock collars. so set your hieght by the shocks first, then add the droop, so say 7mm for the front (5mm ride height + 2mm of droop), so rest your guage on the chassis at 7mm then adjust your droop screws so your tires touch the ground. hope this makes sense droop is a way of tuning your weight transfer, more transfer can gain you some grip, but too much may lead to a lazy feeling to the car.

This is one of those questions that will often receive many answers, all of which are valid . Personally, I prefer an analogue servo with a preference for torque over speed. This helps me as I like to run a bit of drag brake and digital servos in this situation squeal all the time and I am concerned about burning them out. Don't get too hung up on speed for your throttle as many people apply a bit of negative exponential anyway to bring the power on a bit less suddeny, and avoid a hard snap and loss of traction. I also believe you do not need an expensive job - save that for your steering. Something simple like a Futaba 3010 or if you want something faster, the 9405. I've tried Hitec but have found the Futaba to be less of a problem. So my recommendation would be the 3010 - good, cheap and reliable, but any quality analogue servo would do the job well.

ya everyone is different..i tried digital and didn't like the run time i got from my 1100ma...so i switched back to analog...much better and longer...
i use airtronic's 94162 high torque BB MG for throttle and 94357 high speed dual BB MG...they work really nice for me...i like them very much...the throttle servo is in expensive , but the steering servo is a bit pricey...just my Opinion...good luck w/your choice...

I agree with the Airtronics 357 servo for the steering. I've been using it for years in 10th and 8th scale, definately a good servo of choice. I usually use the same for my throttle, all though you don't need to go to that extreme. Look at what the others posted and I am sure they steered you in the right direction. I do recommend to stay clear of Hitec. Some people love then, me on the other hand have had too many issues that ends up wasting money in the long run. For sure stay with analog for your throttle though. Too easy to burn up and draw too much current from braking. Good luck bro!
