Steering?

First off this is a great site.
Wanted oil shocks for my Micro-T and saw the ad under "Shop".
WoW! $19.70 is a great price. Saved over $12 already by being a member here.

The Micro-T is my first ever RC vehicle. I'm having a blast with it.
Problem is - steering. I have a hard time driving it and run into a lot of things.
The trim is set so it runs straight and I turned the knob on the left of the TX
for Steering Rate back to reduce the turn rate.

I set up a track in my basement and when I go around turns I have a devil of a time
keeping the car under control. If I go slow there's no problem.
But when I try to go around fast it turns so sharp I run into the barrier.

Is this just the nature of a micro or is there something I can do to improve steering?
I know part of it is my inexperience and I do practice a lot but just can't seem
to drive the car the way I'd like to.

Would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

Practice, practice, practice. You'll get it eventually.

Problem seems to be resolved.
I inverted the wheels and now have better control on turning.
Fewer bumping into things and faster lap times.
