suspension adjustment advice needed

the car is now 4 linked with coilovers in the rear tubular arms and coilovers up front. Everything is set fully extended now and when I nail the car the left front goes to the sky and wants to flip the car over it feels like. what adjustments do I need to start with to get this car to go straight and keep from rolling over. Im new at this straight line suspension stuff so any help would be awesome

Lol. I just posted this to a new thread. I have read many articles on this and found these to be the easiest to understand. And it addresses your question.
To address your particular problem , adjust the right upper rear control arm, shorten buy turning one flat at a time and retest. Small adjustment will make a big difference. I hope this helps you.

ARB= anti roll bar . ARB will affect equal tire plant. If car is launching to the left or right. Your " chassis twist " is adjusted with rear control arms. Along with the having a good chassis and roll cage would help also.
