I'll take care of the blanket statement, every car is different and you may just need track time tuning it, while I believe that is true I would also reference ic and aim it more forward and/ longer segment depending on how much ballast/ weight removal you are willing to deal with, I also note this a view from a person who has yet to actually scale his car out, so yea
