Default Dirt oval handling question

Handling question here for dirt oval guys. I have a old sportwerks buggy that I race on a local club clay oval track. Hard packed clay with loose dust. The buggy comes off the turns great however, as the buggy is almost straightened out (coming off the turn and barely into the straight) the rear want to break loose. It pushes slightly in the middle but controllable. I have diffs at 5/5/2. I had tried 5-7-2 but was too much power. Its difficult to milk the throttle for this because it is sudden when it happens. I must be absolute square coming off of will loose rear. It finishes 2nd every week.

You should be running around 20000 in the front a lock in the center and 10000 in the rear

thick'n up all your diffs for starters, if it still wants to come around on ya, start looking at your drivetrain....could have a bearing draging....another thing to concider is soften up your suspension 1 corner at a time, starting with the left front, almost sounds like the weight/power transition is causing torque steer....
