1. Work on maximizing front grip. If the rear is not rotating, it's not because something is wrong out back. Almost every car on the street is setup from the factory to understeer (because it is easier for the average driver to correct from an understeer situation than an oversteer situation). Unless you make significant changes to the suspension, the natural inclination of the car will be to push.
2. Buy a small air compressor instead of a tank. The tank is great for making small, fast additions to air pressure, but the compressor is better for adding large amounts of air. Plus, I cannot tell you how many nights I have loaded the car and remembered (at that point) that I hadn't gotten the tank filled.
