Default B5M street stock parking lot racer

So a few friends and I decided to turn our buggies into oval style street stockers with full bodies for road course parking lot racing. Two of them have 22 4.0's that are pretty dialed. They corner pretty flat and are competitive against all but the few fastest buggies. I'm running an old B5M with the mip aluminum three gear trans. The problem in having is even with extremely stiff springs, stiffer than the other guys have on the 22's I have tons of chassis roll in all directions. It's rolling so hard to the side it runs the outside tires and makes the car straighten up in the corners. I feel like I'm missing something in the geometry that could help it drive flatter. The one guy who's 22 SS is the fastest hasn't changed anything in his shocks from when he used to race it on a high grip offroad track. All he's done is put in the CustomWorks springs.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Sway bars, low ride height, and lots of internal shock limiters.

Yessir, the red, blue, and orange Camaro that was no where near as fast as the one that made it into the A main.

Nope, I was in the main with you. Started at the back and took the lead when you guys all tangled up right away.
