I know I've heard people having problems with the TC5 oversteering. You might want to go with stiffer springs in the front. If it still oversteers, go with softer springs in the rear.

you may want to put your setup on here that will help to let us all know where your at with that part and then we can maybe see something there that you can change to help . ex are you running sway bars , what tires are you running , how much grip on the track , tire compound you are useing ,

I have the opposite to you samwize. i have understeer on power. i lengthened the rear wheelbase to help it not do that and now i have the same problem as you. I'm going to try 1degree of anti squat and that should help it or even 6dgre Caster blocks. And i run Modified.

I run on asphalt and a its a medium grip track.

My setup is/ try this -

Front roll center have the 2dotted thing at the front and have the 3 dotted thing at the back. = 1degree of anti dive.
Fear roll center's have the 3 dotted things all round.
Green spring at the back and silver at the front.
And roll bars.
And no ackerman i think.
Everything else factory settings.

don't use any sway bars if you have them this will make it worst on asphalt try 3 deg toe in at the rear, using a front spool will help alot. try reading some of the pro tips at TC5 forum. you will find a lot of useful info.
