Try a front stabilizer. Also try mounting the rear shocks on a more inner hole, or front shocks on a outer hole.

I would add a stabilizer, and add some more rear camber. I run 2 degree negative in the rear and 1.5 degree negative up front...

Good news!
To me they were, I ended-up having -1 Camber front and -1.5 at the back and it seemed to solve my problem not only it was solved but I ended up 3rd at the race.

Vic, glad to know that you have solved your problem. As for the negative camber setting - it is designed to give you more traction to the outside tires as your corner. This occurs because more weight is transferred to those tires and there will be some body roll as well. Hope that helps.

If I would add more - camber means less % of the tire on the ground more slippery???????????
Help me I am fairly new to all this but I love to drive.
I only started this May.

Thanks it did help, on the other hand I am still thinking whether I should have more or less camber in the front compared to the rear and what effects does it have.
I would have another question toe-in in front does it help to have more traction at the rear going in or coming out of a corner?

Thanks!
