Understeer, meaning the front of the buggy wants to continue straight
instead of turning with the tire (push)? You could lean forward to get
more weight on the front tire, or add some weight to the front fork. I
made tubes out of 2" pvc and bolted them to the front fork of my buggy.
It added about 20lbs, and it never pushes or drift when overpowered now.
In fact, I have a bit of oversteer now, which I like for quick turns or
scrubbing speed on demand. I should add it's a heavy Libre full race
buggy. You may not need as much weight.
As far as front rake (caster) goes, more rake gives you stability when
going forward. Less rake gives you stability when going backwards.
Racers like more rake for forward stability at speed, tricksters like
less rake for spinning and going backwards. I doubt changing your rake
will make much of a difference as far as the amount of bite you get on
the front tire, helping you to turn. But I could be wrong, as I've never
