if you have roll bars heres what you can try.
stiffen the front, and soften the rear bars.. if you dont have any optional bars, then use roll bars at the front and remove the rear ones.

if the spining is still happening, then i might try to reduce the front droop and see how it goes.. droop does big changes to your car's handling and the above metioned stuff are what i will try out first.
check your car for chassis tweak as well.

er, simply no... a stock motor has no where near the same amount of power as a mod.
Sounds to me like your running a setup completely unsuited to running a modified. Also... you wieght balance will have changed in switching from a stock to a modified, so re-check the tweak.
Have you thought it could just be your driving style? if you nail the throttle too hard with a modified, you'll break rear traction very easily, and no amount of good setup will stop it sliding... just a thought

16Skyline : Check your ESC programming for Drag Brake and Minimum Brake. Assuming you are using GTB ESC, there is a program to limit the amount of drag braking off throttle. Read your ESC manual.

I use program #1 for drag brake & minimum brake. Program number #1 is the softest value for braking.

Secondly, you may try one or two of the following :
1. add more droop effect in rear ( using hudy block, use lower downstop value at rear ),
2. use harder spring at front.
3. use less droop effect at front ( using hudy block, use higher downstop value at front ).

It would be more effective if you posted the setup you're running on the car to help diagnose the problem. Also, what surface are you running on and what are your radio settings (steering end points L&R, dual rate, etc)?
