Default Back End wobbly

Got a question. I'm trying to set up my car for a race tomorrow and the car is running pretty good except the back end wobbles. The faster i go, the worse it gets. Would it be the toe out or something else?. I've tried to make the toe as even as the naked eye will get me. Thanx

springs too stiff?
too much grip?
IS it wobbling left to right or rolling?

set front toe in/out, don't eye ball it! use tape measure or ruler if that's all you got. measue front wheel distance apart, then measure wheel distance at the rear of the front wheel. Split the difference.
