Default Setup question

Ok guys, I'm running my Sprint 2 with a vapor pro esc and vektor 5900 motor. I have upgraded it to the yeah racing dampers and i currently have the soft springs all round.
My question is I am not getting anywhere near enough traction to be able to corner effectively at speed. the car is slow to turn in and when it finally does start turning in i am having to countersteer it from doing a full spin all the time.
What would you guys be looking at first to rectify this?

I have a set of slick rubber tyres on the car at the moment.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe worth asking the god of setup


You'll need to describe exactly what setup you currently have on the car together with what tyres you have (not just say slicks!). Together with the surface you are running on. Probably some more suitable tyres maybe all that's needed.
