Default Buggy chassis tuning

Hi again everyone, well the second hand car and all the spares I bought have arrived, and it is time to start trying to tune it for me and my local track.
Between the cars I have and the spare parts I will have 5 sets of front and rear shockies, what combination oils and holes should I build?
My local track is what I would consider tight and quick (not fast as no really big straights), it has some sweeping bends with a couple of hair pin corners, but it gets very rough and has low traction apart from when it is watered down.

There is 1 large jump.
I also have a large array of different colored springs, what is recomended?

Also the car came with a large assortment of sway bars both front and rear, what should I fit? and what will the car do with the different bars?

I was emailed some setup sheets so will work off these.

In the spare parts there was a 43t centre diff gear, is this different to standard? and if so what benefit would this have as opposed to standard? (trying to see if I should fit this)

Also there are a few different brake rotors and brake pads, some rotors have what I would describe as cooling fins cut in them, and there are some pads that are material and some that are steel, what should I fit? The brakes do get used a fair bit on the track.

I am basically looking to rebuild it (replacing diff oils so I have a known quantity) and am just trying to figure out what is a good starting point.

I realise Xray oil would be the best for the car but will struggle to justify the cost.
I was thinking of getting something like this

Or
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...25375425wt-2oz

Or are these no good?

And for diff oils.
is it ok to use this brand as opposed to teh higher costing Xray oils?

Thanks in advance from a total tuning rookie, if there are any threads that I can read that will help me in understanding please direct me to them.
