  1. Soften up the rear suspension (lighter oil and springs)
  2. Lower the ride height of the rear end
  3. Depending on the traction of your track, change the anti-squat. If you have a low-traction track, try less anti-squat, for a high-traction track try increasing it.
  4. Lengthen the rear camber links.
  5. Try changing the rear camber a bit
  6. Add a front anti-roll bar
  7. Use a bigger wing, or increase the angle of your existing one

You can also get more bite at the rear by taking some traction away from the front. Try to go a bit stiffer in the front. Also, depending on the track surface you are racing at, you can add weight to the rear or take some weight away. If the track you are at is hard packed and no loose dirt, then add some weight to the front. If the track is loose packed, add some weight to the rear.
