Default RC10GT Chassis Tuning Please Help!!!!!!!

(I am having trouble with my truck. It turns left to quickly and has a left hand push (rear swings to the right)when on power going down the straight. One of the thing that I have noticed that is going on is, when I rev the truck in my hand off the track the right rear suspension compresses thus un-loading the right side of the chassis. Is This supposed to happen? I am running 3deg toe 2deg anti squat and RPM arms, RTR hubs, CVD axles, green springs and 30w oil 1deg camber on rear wheels, camber link is in the upper inside location on the tower and the inside location on the hubs
We are running on a clay surface are tires are slicks with soft foams

You could try and check the eyelet-to-eyelet length on your shocks(mounting holes). A good way to do this is to go to a hardware store and pick up an inexpensive pair of vernier or dial calipers ( you could also go to an industrial supply store or a Fastenal to get a good name brand pair). And use the inside diameter contact points to measure the length of each shock from eyelet-to-eyelet. Then adjust the lower shock mount on one of the shocks (turning it in or out) to match the other. Also you may have put the rear shocks together wrong. Try disassembling then re-assembling the rear shocks EXACTLY the way is says in your manual. It could be that your servo isn't properly centered. You could just adjust the steering trim to compensate or you may have to remove your servo arm and re-center your servo if it's off too much. Also your toe-in and toe-out could be off. Double check that as well.
