Default mtx3 setup help

hey guys, i'm new to this site, so thanks in advance for all of your help. i just got the mtx3 and i have been trying to set it up. out of the box it would seem great for a high speed track, but i'm in san diego and all we have here are parking lot races that are tight and technical. i've already installed a diff as opposed to the one way, and that made it easier to drive. now my problem is when i turn left, the car pushes and when i turn right, the car will spin out and do donuts. i've just been dialing out the servo to not throw to the right as much, but my steering off power suffers. i have a 5 port RB X12 and when i try to ease out of corners, the centax clutch engages so hard it causes the rear end to give. but anyways, i had the car on a hudy board and everything looks even, but there is something wrong. any suggestions would be great. front: -2 camber, in 1 toe. rear -3 camber, 2 in toe. thanks everyone.

Should the front be set as Toe out, instead?

I wouldnt suggest taking steering away from only one side. You might need to re-center your servo, then make sure you have the same ammount of steering throw on each side. Also make sure that both steering rods are the same lenght on each side.

Next, You might want to adjust your centax a little but for a more smoother throttle engagement, so that it doesnt jump as hard off the corner. If you loosen the centax a little bit, it will engage a little earlier, therfore you have a little more finger control, instead of a quick jump.
