Looks to me that your not transferring weight well. This could be the result of limited travel on front, Weak tires in rear, but more likely a center of gravity that is too low or forward for your Horsepower and traction. Is there any convenient way to raise ride height, front and rear?

If you get good transfer, it may show that your IC is too low for your COG height and Spring and shock rates.

I would look to getting weight higher to start, even if you have short front struts or limiters. Where your weight is, is the most overlooked part of any combination. It is a combination and each part of it is different from any other car. Yours as well as KY mustang are cars that benefit from more HP. But traction is also needed.
