    Still too stiff on compression, and probably rebound. Your chassis is rising considerably when the wheel hits the oncoming face of each whoop, it should stay at a near even keel.

    Here is a slow mo of my car a couple years ago. I went a shim softer on both compression and rebound on the front and rear, and limited the high speed compression to keep it from bottoming on the sharp transitions.

    Notice how much to wheels move, chassis moves only a little. Now the chassis is nearly dead still

    Watching it again, the rear end looks like it isn't bottoming or packing when it pogos into the air.

    Compression is too stiff for the rebound. It is a fine balance between the two. I found that the softer I made the compression, I had to lighten the rebound valving to keep the shock from packing up.

    What was the spring rate and what is it now?

    Cool
    Here is video from this last weekend. The car now is moving so I can see what it is actually doing. The earlier video you can see the front end hardly moved. The spring rates are front 100 over 100 and the rear is 150 over 150.....Looks like I need to a rebound to the rear to slow it down and pull out some rebound from the front to make it faster??? what do you guys think?.....Also the last part of the video is my Brothers LS car. He is twice the HP but also twice the weight. He is my motivation to go fast. PS....He has more money in his transmission than I do in my enter car

    More compression valving front and rear, go up at least 25% or so, lower the front, you're running out of droop and it's dropping the front into holes and making things worse.
