Thanks Craig, I forgot about your notes on that blog page and I even carry them in my pit bag. Shame on me.

When you say diff out, what do you mean?

In this particular case, on a non-race day where track prep was lower than normal (sealed asphalt parking lot track), I went from 3k to 1k in an effort to stop the car from spinning out on off-power corner entry and on-power corner exit. The 1k made it way more sensitive. I didn't have time to try another oil so I stood the rear shocks up from 3 to 4 and 4 to 5. This made it better but if I got aggressive, it would still want to spin out.

This is a 17.5 blinky car. It sounds like I should put 3k or higher in but you also say thinner oil may work in slower classes... What would you suggest I try as the next step. By the way, I'm using the kit setting minus wheel shims.
