I could use some help to fine tune my set-up. The buggy is tight on entry to the corners and loose on exit. As I enter the corners the buggy will hardly turn. I am sliding almost to the pipe before I can get it to grab. When it finally turns it is trying to snap around on me.

My Set-up:
Front:
standard diff 3000
camber -1.5
toe out 2 deg
shocks inner hole on arm and top inside on tower
arms outer hole on hub and top hole inside
shock fluid 37.5 2 pistons drilled to 54/2 stock
white springs
caster 22 deg.

Center:
spyder diff 3000

Rear:
standard diff 1000
camber -1.5
toe in 3 deg
shocks inner hole on arm and top outside on tower
arms outer top on hub and inside middle on tower
shock fluid 32.5 2 pistons drilled to 54/2 stock
gray springs
anti-squat 2 deg.
1.5 deg. offset hubs

I have a standard diff for the center if someone thinks that will help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
