Thicker Oil will make the Car react Quicker to direction changes, but SLOW down the weight transfer from Front to Back. And vice versa with lighter weight oils.

What you will probably find is the Car now is lazyier to direction changes with the Thinner Oil in the Front. If so, just go up in the Front Oil wt until the Car is the way you like it.

Also too little Droop can make the Rear loose off throttle.
Thanks all.

Pops, you're right on. And you're right, it became more "lazy".

Thanks again, I got something here to work on. And maybe, I sould even try the harder springs in the rear. Until now, I've always found it was better with softer springs in the rear, but why not give it a try.
