if i remember correctly, you could try to raise the panhard bar a little, that should loosen the car up from the middle all the way out of the turn

If your just loose in the middle i would just add stagger, that will have the greatest effect in the middle without effecting entry/exit. Raising the panhard bar will help too if you raise the whole bar and don't change the angle.

Too tight in the middle can be several things.
1) Increase tire stagger
2) Less rear-end lead
3) Less rear %
4) Need more power
5) Gear change
6) Carb stumble
7) Trailing arm location needs to move up on right or down on left
8) Don't run split valve shocks
9) Less pan hard bar angle or raise rear roll center
