Default Maximum Oversteer?

For a project, I want to have the least rear traction both on and off power.

What can I do?

Rear spool
Hard springs
Thicker shock oil
0 toe
Stiff rear roll bar
?

Large amounts of rear camber, stiffest springs in the rear, a spool, thickest shock oil.

Extreme front toe out, stand your shocks up as vertical as possible. These will aid with the above mentioned

A real hard, snappy clutch will help aswell

Just do away with the shocks. Use tierod ends and turnbuckles to replace the shock. That should reduce rear grip alot.

just use drift tires in the rear.
if still not enough; use a solid axle for the rear!

10 degree toe out at the rear and 10 degree toe in at front.
using a spool in the rear axle would be nice.

I'm just curious. What do hope to accomplish with that set up? Sounds like you are making a crazy donut maker or a hard to control drift machine. I'd like to hear how either turns out.
