This may sound stupid but I have seen people do it before. Check to make sure you do not have a plaid on one of the rears instead of a purple. It will make your car silly loose.

Chicky was referring to the fact that you may have different hardness (shore rating) of tires on each side of the rear of the car ... something to check ...

I don't mean to insult the guy that helped you with the tweak on your car ... but does he know what he is doing?

I don't have any experience with a Green Machine 3 ...

But ... for someone to respond to this, more info is needed ...

-type of car (I assume it's a TC3)
-48 or 64 pitch
-type of track (i.e. long and flowing ... tight infield ... long or short main straight ... etc.)
-driving style (i.e. lots of stopping and starting from hitting boards ... free flowing through corners ... etc.)

I could probably think of more variables ... but I'm sure you get the idea.
