Hey guys im using a 97 passat with a vr6 in a bone stock fwd v4/6 series. My car is running pretty strong I'm just working on fine tuning the handling of my car. The track has I would say a medium banking. The camber on my car has to be stock so its sitting at -1deg RF and my LF is +1deg. (this is the most i can get out of them) My tires/pressures im using are:

185-60 25PSI LF
195-65 32PSI RF
195-65 24PSI RR
195-65 20PSI LR

Right now my car is tight in the turns. Im trying to turn but the tires are starting to turn a bit sideways and its pushing up to the wall coming out of the turn and during the middle of the turn. I'm very new to this racing and only have a couple races under my belt. Im looking for some suggestions as to how to help with this issue. My car is fast on the straight but I seem to be losing time in the corners.

Im supposed to run all stock components so I am fairly limited to adjusting tire pressures and tire sizes (cant change rim sizes). I may be able to heat up a spring to weaken it if that will help. or if there is any more tricks of the trade LMK.

Thanks for your time and your help,
