You need to list the details of what you are running. Can we assume it is a D8T?

List general details of the type of track. Be sure to list the tires used, and your setup information. Springs, shock oil, diff oil and etc. Try posting in this D8T forum.

I would say try a little bit of toe out on the front end keep in mind there your steering will be quicker and a little harder to drive.

Make sure the steering saver isnt to loose thats the first thing i would check.

Check what they said on the above posts first. Then if it is still pushing, make sure you dont have too much front brake. If it still pushes, check your rear droop, and front shocks. More rear droop will help transfer weight to the front under braking. Your front shocks are either too stiff and not allowing the weight to transfer or too soft allowing them to bottom out. Then lastly, lengthen your wheel base.
