Default spool in the back?

i raced my mi2ec last night on polished wooden floor (very low grip) and every time i entered or exited a corner i would spin out i think this could be the front spool that is the problem. could i solve this by putting the spool in the back?
thanks

No, it probably because you are on a VERY low grip surface.

Try increasing front droop (which will increase weight transfer to the rear on corner exit), and decrease rear droop.

And go to a stiffer front spring and a softer rear spring.
