putting lr in the car should fix both of those problems. id try putting 1 turn in lr and take 1 turn out of the rr. and maybe if its bad enough do two turns on each.
that should help with both problems

adding rear steer to the car would also be a cause of this exact problem. when the car goes in the corner the rear steer makes it tight then it wants to snap sideways in the middle of the corner.

I had the same problem at the beginning of the year with my car! Resquare the rearend maybe 1/8 of lead if you think you need to. Put the heavier spring in the LF and softer of the two in the RF. This will help get the car on the RF and help turn. Freed my car up!
