Default MBX5R question

I raced my mbx5r that I got bought of the forums for the first time yesterday and it was way looooose.Our track tends to be dry slick/dusty anyway but I spent alot of time counter steering when I hit the throttle.I asked 3 of other mugen drivers and got 5 different answers.I did change the rear toe plate from a 2 to a 2.5 and it seemed to help but it's still a tad ass happy.Should I try a 2.75 or a 3?
Ohh also it tries very hard to die right after refueling....what would be the cause of that?
It's deffinately a different animal than the Sportwerks buggies I usually race

if it tries to die after you pit then your probably to rich on the bottom. if you are squirly goin down the track then i would use different tires.( any dirt dusty track will be kind of squirly.)

no problem, make sure the hinge pin locknuts are not tight. leave them loose or it will bind and let me know how the car is after the next time out.
