Default KC Astro set up help?

Just after some advice on set up for Astro.
Currently running a Cougar KC and the arse end just seems very wayward, I feel I should be able to push the car harder but the back end just doesn't feel planted and spins out a fair bit.

I am running yellow cut staggers on the front, and yellow darts on the back. The car is currently on the previous owners set up, thinking I might set it to the manual Astro set up and work from there. Currently running with the motor on layout 4 (at the back), might change it to 1 though so the motors further forward rather than at the back.

Leave the car on position 4. Most traction and still plenty of steering.
Which track are you running on?
Changing to kit setup is a decent idea, people drive differently so who ever had it before might have suited them.... A few decent astro setups on petit...

Mostly run at Bury, I believe the car use to be ran at Robin Hood raceway.
Never heard of Petit, just checked it out, cheers for the heads up.

Definitely back to kit set up as you have no idea where it's at.
Definitely position 4

Try stagger on front they make it smoother than cut stagger.
