A very effective tuning device is wheel offset. Try moving the rear tires leftward of the car's centerline. That is, use a 4" backspace on the RR and a 2" on the left rear. With the problem you described and everything else remaining the same, this change will help you out and you will notice it. Of course there are other things you can do, but without getting into every specific characteristic of your car, track, and driving style, this should get you closer.
