I realize you're on a budget, but if you want the car to work on a road course, get some Konis in there. Stiffer shock valving makes a big difference on these cars. And being able to adjust the front and rear settings separately is great for tuning the front-to-rear balance of the car.
On my SC, I'll go with the full hard setting on all four shocks for high-speed courses like Mosport and Watkins Glen. For the slower-to-medium-speed tracks with tighter corners like Shannonville I go with about 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn from full hard on the front shocks, and full hard on the rear shocks. These shocks are sensitive enough that 1/4 of a turn makes a difference.
