could be anything from running a front spool, too thick of rear diff fluid, needing more toe, camber, caster, droop...it's a lot of factors. no one knows where to direct you unless you put up your entire setup

Not sure what your track looks like, but the first thing I'd do is reduce that rear toe a bit. Maybe just move to the .5 out on the RF blocks. You could also try moving the rear shocks in one hole on the tower and fronts one hole out. That should make the car carve into the corner a bit better.

Pictures of your track and specific corners you're having problems with would also help us sort it out.

Black carpet I would DEFINITELY reduce rear toe. 3.5 is way too much for FT2.

You didn't say what class, but if we're talking touring car the body also has a large role in entry and exit steering. The ltcr will have more entry steering and the mazda will have more exit steering.

I also think you have way too much rear toe for black carpet, but that doesn't change off power steering as much as it will on power steering.

generally i run 5.5 RH front and rear with about 1.5 droop over ride height. your rear diff lube sounds too thick, with some recent reading i went from 7k to 2k. i'm testing it out this weekend, but i could tell it was pushing me on exit.

also as was said above, go to 3* toe in on the rear and i wouldnt go beyond 1* toe out on the front.

ALSO front spools does have a tendency to push as well coming hot into a corner especially off a straight away

I don't run an x-ray anymore. But before I got rid of it on ft2 carpet the most rear toe I ever ran was 2.5. and almost always I had 2...
