I have no idea which car in the video was yours. But I can still have a guess at what's wrong with the setup.
Tires: Change them! Anything from Take-off/RP/Sorex. Check with the local fast drivers to see what their using. If the track is bumpy, then use a softer insert with more airgap.
Castor: 1 deg is probably too direct for such a large high speed track. Change to 4deg. This gives you much more stability.
Camber - check your tire wear. If the outer portion of the tire is getting worn, then use more camber. I'd try around -1. No more.
Roll centers - which blocks are you using on the car? Use a SMALL or very thin spacer under the blocks. Good for low traction tracks as the car rolls more to generate grip.
Maybe try heavier weight oil to calm the car down. Esp with the above changes.
Rear Toe: Use more toe if the rear kicks out. For MOD I never run anything less than 2.5, even more regularly 3.0deg
That's just a general observation. Hope that helps you on your way.
