Your rear toe is what stands out to me the most. i run around 3 degrees pretty much everywhere. i would put a spool in the front aswell if you arent already running one. If my car was doing that and i had my rear toe set correctly the next thing i would do would be to give it more front droop to transfer more weight rearward when you hit the throttle and give you more rear traction.

ok i have the rear tow set at 3 deg on each side. raised ride hight to 6.0 on rear and lowered front to 5.0. i had a spool in the front but opted to remove it and run a diff because of understeer in a hairpin turn. i am not running any of the rubber rings in the top plate and was told that running the chassis so rigid could cause my problem also. i also reset my rear camber to 2 deg and front to 1.5.

How does your diff fell is it smooth and tight? I run my diff tight. If your diff slips atoll then there is a higher chance your car will spin out exiting a corner. p.s i have used the ltc-r and never noticed this issue

What are your droop settings front and rear?

Personally, I would only run with 0.5mm difference in ride height front to rear (ie lower the rear to 5.5)
