Default Back End Wiping Out

My rear tends to almost "slide" out in turns. How would I go about fixing this?
Thanks.

NTC3 Plus, but to help, i have adjustble threaded shocks, with 40 oil in them, rebuilt about 3 weeks ago. tweak is correct as well.

i just ran with some tire compound on the rear and the problem seemed very lessened.

Try the easiest fix first and put softer tires in the rear. If you need to get the rear end to be stucked more, then add more toe in the rear (like 3 degrees).

Less droop in front ( higher downstop number )

More droop in rear ( lower downstop number )

Harder front tires and Softer rear tires or eg. 37F and 35R

Increase the height of rear upper link

Harder springs for rear, but you need some testing to confirm that.

Good luck and be patience.

I bet adding the rear toe that Jo suggested will help. When I had the NTC3 I had the same problem (right when I started racing). I whined to Barry and he added a lot of rear toe. Problem solved.
