Try moving the battery in the "rear" placement. This will give you less steering.

Could be wrong tires. Ask around to see what everyone else is using.
I had the battery in the rear, and for the top guy at my track is running the same tires just on a different car...I just found the anti roll bar in my toolbox and I will throw that on there tomorrow. Thank you guys for all the information, everything helps

EDIT: also forgot to mention positioning of shock towers, the front is placed on the 3rd one in(changed this) and the rear is on the first i think(how it came )

Try the Black roll bar. Front only.

Oh yea..Rear toe in about 2-3 degrees. Whats your alignments ?

When you sauce the fronts sauce only the inner half of the tire, not the entire tire.

Good luck
