From what I have been testing, the inner hole is better for stock racing, and the outer hole is better for the faster classes were more steering is needed.

If I'm racing on a track where I lose rear traction entering the corner, would switching to outer holes help?

Are you coming in at low speed or high speed? Check to see if you have high drag breaks setting if you lift in the corners that will cause instanant weght tranferfer causing the rear to break lose, Also check the minor areas 1st like tire compund, camber, how much weight is in the front and rear, or maybe a simple wing adjustment will fix it. My BD5World does it at high turn-ins because my ball diff was tight in the front and was loose in the rear so it upset the back alot

Mid speeds(17.5t motor), zero drag brakes. It's supposedly high grip, but where I normally race I don't have this problem at all.

Your car is overgripped at the front keffy, my car does the same out there thanks to the VHT. Raise the front roll centre and widen the front track. Run thick oil (e.g. 600f 500r) and if it's still biting too much at the front try less ackerman spacers

I would keep using the inner hole. Maybe post your setup and we can give you some advice. But i would try what the others mentioned, run more front droop (lower number on the blocks) and maybe go a harder front spring.
