Default Diff tuning for oval?

Any good videos, blogs, web pages that discuss and cover how diff tuning affects oval racing? I've had problems diffing out on corner exit and some of it is driver error but I'm curious if I can get a more forgiving feel by running looser or tighter? Running a tlr ball diff on 22 5.0

Matt's tuning guide will probably help. I generally set mine using the rivkin method of break in and setting to 1-1.5 turns when spun.

Tighter diff makes the car feel looser. Looser diff does the opposite. Too loose and you'll burn the diff up. I'd maybe see what you can do to get the car to not sit so hard on the RR.
