All else failed, you can always go back to the stock settings as per the manual...

One thing to work on is to smooth out your throttle control. Try and ease into the throttle instead of on off on off. Don't worry that's how most people start driving. But if you listen to the pros drive you'll hear waaaaah waaaaaah. Not wah wah wah wah around turns. watch Adam drake videos on YouTube. That's the most recorded driver by far. You'll understand what I'm Talmud about instantly if you compare your video to his. All in all just roll into the throttle and stay on it longer. Don't compensate your driving for a bad setup. If the rear wants to spin out just try thinner rear diff fluid or thinner center center did fluid.

Thanks for the reply. I have watched adam drake in youtube but in all that noise I couldnt hear clearly what you were saying. So to understand fully, he brakes before the turn, turns the carn freewheel and then steps on the throttle?

Nice video. Seems like you have alot of engine in that 10spec Choose a line or make an imaginery line that gives the most speed going in and out of turns. something i noticed early was that Drake always ran the same line every single lap.

Another tip, slow down while you are finding this line.

basically just be smooth onto the throttle, dont tap tap tap tap it. just slowly give it throttle so you dont lose traction and once your on it stay on the throttle. When you tap the throttle continuously it tends to make the diffs act a little inconsistent so you end up not having as much control as you should.
