If suspension setup and body positioning is good, try running a grippier tire in front than in back. I run an aggressive sand knobby in front and a milder K270 in the rear. The front end carves better in the soft stuff than the rear. I just get my weight forward, turn in, and steer with the gas. The front end carves and the back end comes around and drives it out of the corner.
