I really liked this setup. One thing I found to reduce lap times was to reduce the front stabilizer to 5 or even 4 while leaving the rear at 7. Makes you able to take the long turns much quicker, just so long as you can control a bit more oversteer. And taller gears also helped like you suggested. Great job.
*EDIT: Just noticed you actually had the stabilizers at 5 not 7. In any case, I'd suggest having the front stabilizer 2 points lower than rear.
