I'd also try decreasing your downstops to give you more droop.
The CoG change isn't the significant factor; the driveshaft angle is what you're changing there.

The torque on the driveshaft makes it want to stay straight, which prevents the car pitching and transfers weight directly to the tyres instead. So more angle on the driveshafts will cause more of a violent weight transfer under acceleration and braking.

This will give more turn-in steering and more traction on exit, which can be good in low grip. The downside is that the car becomes more sensitive to throttle/brake inputs, so can snap suddenly.
