I dont have my ta05 yet, its being shipped but I have heard of this problem before when you convert to the lighter chassis.
Possible things to try are
1) lighter rear springs (but try to be 1 or 2 rates max in difference between the f+r rate or you will upset the balance of the car).
2) use a low G of G for your droop setting, this will help the car "sway" into the corners more than a standard kit setting. Conmbine this with good camber link points. the shorter they are the better.
3) more additive on rear tyres.
4) try putting some stick on weights at the back end of the chassis.
Sway bars are not my area of knowledge so I cant say if they will help or not, all I can say is that they will help the ta05 immensley on carpet from what i've been told so just experiment with them.
As with anything, moderation is the key word so dont go too extreme on any change and do one thing at a time to see if it helps
You may find after some changes that you have (or already have) too much steering, so watch out for it and change your expo if need be.
