Man. There is nothing more frustrating than an ill handling 1/12th car.
What is your ride height in the center of the chassis? Maybe it's bottoming out and unloading the tires? Can you see any rubbing or better yet, any traction build up on the bottom of the chassis? You can take a clean white rag, spray it with motor spray and then wipe the bottom of the chassis. Depending on how black the rag is will tell you how bad it's bottoming out on the track. For a perfectly smooth carpet track, I run about 3mm front and 3.5 in the rear. You may want to raise that to 4.0 in the rear and 4.5 in the front. That will take away some steering.
Is the rear pod free? No binding. If you take the center shock off, the side shock and the side springs off, does the pod freely flop around? With everything hooked back up, do you have about 1.0mm of rear pod droop when you pick up the car and sight along the bottom of the chassis and the bottom motor pod plate from the side?
Move the weight forward. DO NOT PUT IT IN THE REAR OF THE CAR!! That will only make the car spin out more. If you have ever thrown darts, where is all of the weight in a dart? Thats right, in the front. And when you throw the dart, does it go straight?
Try putting on a pair of 24 front springs. You have already tried pink rears and purple fronts and the problem is still there. Try 24 front springs.
Screw the side springs down to where they just touch the chassis. Then back them off a quarter turn. Try lighter side springs
Put some 10 weight oil in the center shock and an olive/green spring on the center shock.
Try narrowing the rear track and widening the front track.
Move all of the caster shims to the back
Get a good tweak station and check the car every time you go on the track. Just make it a habit.
This is a lot to try so you can try a few at a time but I would start with one part of the chassis and then move to the other. You know. Do the rear adjustments first, try the car and then do the adjustments to the front. You should have the most rear traction with pink rears and purple fronts so I would stay with that tire combo while you are doing these changes. Also, glue the front outside side wall of the front tires. This will decrease front bite.
Try these and report back.
