Sounds like you need to free it up on entry. Tight in, loose off is are problem when the track is heavy. 3/8 semi banked, We stiffened up the right front only & saw a big change with only 1-1/2" stagger in the rear.

I happens when I get back into the gas I have 1 1/4 rear stagger
rear springs are
200 175
front is a chevelle ft clip
1100 1200
the track is a dry slick all night I like the entry it is great but comming off the corner it comes loose bad and the car goes right up the track outher than that the car is great when I accellerate it explodes down the track I can have 3 car links to the first corner from the start
