Default On power push

Okay so with my current sway bar setup FM front/stock rear. Alignment -1.7 front and rear camber, 4.5 caster and zero toe front/rear. Ride hight 12.75" front, 13.0" rear. My car is just fine on the track and good on a open auto x track. Now on power it like to push (under steer) on really tight stuff. I was thinking the MSM 14MM rear sway would help Maybe mess around with tire pressure right now its set 40 psi all around. I need to get the car realigned so let me know if you guys have any ideas that might help me. Thanks

PS I want to keep the rear bar

Ditching the rear bar would just make it worse. Why not have a stiffer rear bar for tight courses and the MSM bar for track and large auto-x courses? Or get a rear sway with different adjusting holes so you have the option...

I was thinking of getting the FM rear bar also. You know maybe I should play around with the front sway bar. Right now I have it set soft I think.... whatever FM tells you to do. Right now with the stock bar the car is great so I think the MSM would help with the push. I don't think I need to go bigger but what do I know.

The stiffer you set it, the more it'll push
