Toe in is already 2' .Ride hight 5mm front 6 mm rear.I think with a sway bar on rear it will be worst.

You may try this;

1) decrease front uptravel(droop). Possible that so much weight moving rearward that the rear chassis is touching causing a slide out. possible but relatively unlikely

2) Raise rear roll centre - ie insert 1.5mm spacers under hub end of camber link. this is somewhat counterintuitive but has worked in past for me.

3) check tweak - If you get a chance, run the same corner in the opposite direction to determine if the car acts the same way.

4) camber links - switch from shorter to longer or the other way. No change effect is cut in concrete so may be worth trying. The shorter link should give more camber gain s a result better tracking but worth testing.

Is this foam carpet if so all these are good ideas but the main thing is take the spool out and put in a diff that will help a lot...Later Drew

This may sound kinda stupid but are you using tire traction on the foams? As good as foam tires are on carpet, you still need the "sauce". Sometimes this is overlooked by new racers.

My Yoke was doing that. Three degree toe in on the rear took most of it out.

Yes i use Trinity Red Dot or Nosram traction additive asphalt.Without the "sauce" is even more difficult to turn as the traction is not so good.

Both of those are asphalt traction additives. Are you allowed to use Paragon. Paragon works the best on Carpet but it has a wintergreen smell to it so its banned at a lot of indoor tracks but the stuff is great. If you can't use that then use Jack the gripper. Once you use the correct carpet traction I bet most of your problems will be gone.

I just re read your original post again, just to be clear are you running carpet or asphalt? Indoor or outdoor, the more info the better your responses can be. lots of people willing to help, we just need to know more.

Rule of thumb: Run a front diff with foams on carpet
