not sure of size, but if you have traction problems, start on tyres, wheels and suspension...what sort of mods do you have for traction to be a huge problem in the dry?....if its only in the rain you have problems then it something you have to live with!

what tyres ya got? cheap tyres are next to useless around corners (with exceptions) but if ya got everything done and good tyres then i'd be looking at driving style coz it seems you have issues with oversteer.. and are the corners smooth? rough? off camber?

a nice thick swaybar would help also.. so yeah if everything is mechanically good then maybe its driver style - and no i am not calling you a bad driver cos i don't do that to people unless they almost kill me (one of my mates is a bad driver!!)
