You could try this as starting point:

Tyres: Schumey Yellow Minipins, Snee Blue Foam

Front:

35wt Oil
No. 2 Piston
Blue Spring
Middle on Tower
Inner on Arm
30 Deg Caster (Stock)
Camber Link - Car = Inner (1 washer), Hub = Inner
Camber: -0.5 deg
Std Ackerman
Trailing Axles

Rear:

30wt Oil
No. 1 Piston
Silver Spring
Middle on Tower
Inner on Arm
Std Toe In, 1 deg antisquat
Camber Link - Car = Inner, Hub = Middle
Medium Wheelbase
Camber: -1 deg

Tuning:
More Steering, reduce front oil to 30wt, then try inline axles (if you have them)
Less Steering, Run Front Camber Link Longest

More Rear Traction on Power: change to Short Wheelbase
More general traction/smoother: change to Inner Hole On Tower
Less Grip in Middle of the corner: Try 2 Deg Antisquat.

One thing though - stock front castor is 25degree isnt it? the optional blocks give either 30 or 20 depending on which set you buy, but personally I always used 25 when I had a B4 and im now still 25 with the X-6.

we running 30 on the x6 now chris, the cars is less twitchy and more balanced, plus you get more steering out of the corner,and more on power

The principles of 30 degree on B4 do not cross over to X-6, I find it just gives understeer in, during and out of the turn, hated it. 25 degree's for me, but each to their own Carl, you stick with it ;)

I found the same with my s2 chris (nother mid motor car) the 25's helped give the car more steering all through the corner.

Strange isn't it. We thought 20's may be even better and Dan tried them, but noooo - they were like the 30's again - understeer.

But we're way off topic LOL, B4 is a different kettle of sheep.

I run them low mate, so thats turned low and no washers. Dan runs his turned upside down.

I found that the way Dan has his the rear didn't square up as well on corner exit, and over-rotated for me. The low position like I have it feels a lot more predictable, it suits me nicely.
