Post your spring/shocks combo, tire pressures, tire type, and percentages if you have scaled your car. Track size and type ie; 3/8 dry-slick etc. Used to race one of these and got it to handle like a dream. I'm all us on here could help ya out.

Try racing clockwise. The way you have your car set up, I think it might work fine, and just think of the cars you'll be passing!!!!!!
++++SORRY----I couldn't help myself. I would suggest moving the left springs and tires to the right and the right springs and tires to the left. Then purchase some "racing" struts and shocks. When you get all of that done, find someone who will help you scale your car out. You will enjoy your racing about a gazillion times better.

If you can replace your struts with shocks, do it. Also your front tire pressures are off also. If your rf is rolling over on the sidewall by more than an inch or two the pressure is too low. Dropping the rf pressures way low to "increase grip" can actually make a car push worse. Seen it a million times. Remember, There's no tread on the sidewall, pretty much as smooth as a baby's **** . I would recommend something like 18 or 19 lbs rf and 14 or 15 lbs lf. Your rear pressures should be around 16 lbs rr and 14 lbs lr. Tire pressures are easy to play around with at the track. A pound or two can make all the difference. Get your car scaled. If you don't have scales, ask around, I'll bet you know someone who does.
