more info would be helpful.......
kit, engine, surface, body.....

some possibles.....
too much power.. seen it many times.. I can't control my hpi with a .18.. duh.
slop in the car,
too weak of a steering servo,
binding somewhere,
bad diffs...

as for the tires, I've had better luck on any surface with foams over rubber.

whats everyone else running at the track?? foams or rubber..

lowering it can help or make it worse..
if its too low then the chassis will hit the ground causing the weight to shift.

when it starts getting out of control, is it wandering or does it feel twitchy?
by wandering I mean does it seem to randomly go here and there..
by twitch I mean is it seem like the steering it too sensitive....

it seems to just go to the side (both sides) it just seems to do its own thing the steering olso does feel too sensitive you just tap slightly and your off/they seem to be on foam/ i put foam on but it still seems to go off the track i then lowerd it but havent tested it

check the steering for excessive play. also sounds like you need a better setup..
first thing I would do is go back to foams.

a little is ok but really you want as little as possible.
how much play is in the steering without moving the servo?

did you, build the kit new, got it rtr, bought used?

I dont know much about that car, but usually stock setups are pretty good.

well id suggest you get a good servo for steering (high speed and high torque servos would be good) My friend had this problem before but when we changed it to a high speed/torque servo, boy did it handle well.

Make sure all 4 wheels are driving the car. Are all the axles, belts dogbones, driveshafts etc on the car. It really sounds like you are running on 2 wheel drive.
