Trying to get my car to handle a bit better. It just seems really loose on sweeping corners. Cant give it to much gas or she just spins out.
There was some other guys down at the track yesterday and their cars just seemed to stick so much more.
I am a beginner by the way so i know my driving skills have a fair bit to do with this.

1st to look for is tyres. Getting the right one for your track is vital,save you a lot of time in setting up the car. Take a look around the pit, what tyres and inserts do majority of the racers use.
From your post, it seems that you need more front droop over height, coz tjis happends in on power situation. So more droop over ride height at the front will give more weight transfer to the rear hence more grip.
Use more toe in at the rear. My case I m using 3 deg block.
Use softer rear spring. I m using HPI silver at the rear and pink (harder) at the front)
Lay down the rear shock angle some more.
Use softer rear stabilizer. My case, I m not using at all.
Narrow the rear track witdth by using narrow suspension block and 4mm wheel hex.
This may sound weird but I m using 0.5mm roll center shims on all blocks front and rear. In theory raising the rear roll center will reduce weight transfer during leaning in to the corners BUT I found out it actually calm the rear down. Maybe for this car it has too much rear roll weight transfer to begin with so the tyres overheated and loose traction.
