Basically I'm leveling as Feral dps with the plan of carrying it on when I'm 80,
Here's My Armoury: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Auchindoun&cn=Freyi
At the moment i generally put out between 1k - 1.3k dps in instances, more than most players I've played with (except arcane mages lol), kieeping Rake, Rip and mangle up as much as possible throwing a few 5cp 5-6.8k FBs into the mix when I can.
In the empty glyph slot will be the one for Savage Roar
And the remaing talents will finish filling King of the Jungle and Rend and Tear, along with primal gore and beserk leaving 1 left over (probably into Feral instinct, is it worth taking the one out of survival instincts and sticking it in this as well?)
Basically I wanted to know if I'm on the right track at the moment, any advice you guys could lend me would be nice through regarding specc or anything in general,
I have read the Cat DPS Guide for Dummies on elitist Jerks, and this is the guide I've been following.
Thanks a lot for any help that can be offered.

Personally I'd lose Feral Aggression, pick up Feral Instinct and complete KotJ. In the average 5-man, swipe should be the main ability to use on any pull with two or more mobs, and increasing its damage by 30% is a no-brainer. TF (with 3/3 KotJ), used at the right time, enables you to spam swipe more leading to more dps.
To reiterate, lose FA. FB is used too infrequently for the 15% extra damage to matter. Do all you can to improve swipe, because it is the only really good way to top damage meters on trash (which, as we all know, is what really matters in 5-mans).
The guide you linked is great, but you have obviously followed the Maximum Single-Target DPS
spec, which, until you are raiding, is not advisable. (even when you are raiding, in any raid instance with trash you'll want to have your swipe damage maximised, if only to have 20k+ dps to brag about). The Maximum AoE-DPS
spec linked in that thread is a great all-round spec that will allow you to top all ze meters on trash, without letting your single target dps suffer too much.
