What sort of courses do you run?
Tight? Open? Concrete? Ashpalt?

What springs and sways do you have?
What tires are you running?

There's TONS of variables to everyone's setup.
A little more info on what you're running would help a lot.

Just checked your profile...
So, you got Koni dampers and springs.
IMHO, svtstu's answer is on the right track.
I don't have my notes from 2 weekends ago, but IIRC, I had the fronts at 1/2 turn from full stiff, and the rears at 1/4 turn from full stiff.
Remember though, I've also got a 22mm rear bar, -2° camber (LCR plates) up front, and -1.5° in the rear with adjustable arms.
I gotta tell ya, the back end of my car has never been so lively.
I could get it to come around extremely easy with a little trail braking or throttle lift oversteer.

Definitely crank your rears up a bit more at the next event.
You'll like it.
