what values have you tired?
try to increase more :-)

by default, the repulsive force between polyhedrons is proportional to
the overlapping volume, which might be "very small" but "visually
noticeable". You can set the volumePower [2] to 1/3. or even less to get
higher forces for smaller overlapping volume.
