You may want to try sway bars also if your running on a track. They helped me some in cornering. Also play with the suspension, and tires.

if the car wants to slide you can complement that by learning how to drift...If you get good at it you can use it to your advantage. All you gott learn how to do is learn how to control the rear end with precise steering and good throttle control...Other wise you can get the sway bars...stiffer springs...good rubber/foams...lower center of gravity...you might even want to put some aluminum in the back so it gives the back end a little more bite for those corners. Good luck and remember...a good driver equals an awesome car

Though a drift car is fun to drive, I've never seen a drift car turn faster laps than one that is really hooked up. They just aren't consistent enough. The tires start to heat up and get greasy from all that spinning, plus you eat through tires like crazy. It's fun to tear up a parking lot with one though. Just have some extra tires on hand. Tires are the very first and largest improvement for handling. Picking the right one really depends on what type of surface you are running on.
