When you are that late in the corner, just getting on throttle, your car is probably dumping too hard to the outside tire and loosing traction. A stiffer rear bar will help, raising your rear arm mounts .5mm or the full .75mm would also help. Other less dramatic options, depending on setup, would be equal oil in all 4 shocks, if you are running a lighter oil in the rear, or standing your shocks up one on the rear tower.

I was running the 1.3 rear anti roll bar and my inner camber link low at 0.5, 450 oil. I was think that maybe my car wasnt rolling enough to give the grip and was letting go

Thinking of buying a T4 today, what spare parts or hop-ups are good to have in-hand? what breaks often?

C hubs, steering hubs and rear hubs. Front and rear belts, spool out drives and maybe suspension arms.

I would grab one of each belts, one front arm, rear arm, two of each c hub, 4 steering blocks, two rear hubs, shock o rings and diff gaskets. I hate waiting on parts.

IMO, you're over dampened, should be running 350. you can try running the rear links short, it will increase camber gain and grip. Go back to the 1.2 rear bar or.... you could just start with EA's Snowbirds setup and work from there. JMO

450 is a bit too thick for rear shocks. Go to 300-350 and use the +.75 rear arm blocks..... I usually leave the camber link at medium length front and rear.

+1 to EA's Snowbirds setup! We also tested it with 2.7 springs front and rear and tried a spool out... It worked good on our tighter layouts.

Do you have any links to photos of the track at all?
That might help others give advice on handling.

I run 450 oil in my car and found it to be a bit more predictable when being thrown around on carpet, this was with 10degC track temps etc in a cold hall.
Quite a few other drivers have been using 400cSt front and rear here (this was using Sorex 28JB's)
