Car is rolling instead of drifting

I have a problem with my MadCar setup. For some reason when I try to drift the car in high speed into the corner, it starts to drift nicely but then suddenly in half of the curve it rolles over the roof.
Please watch the video on the link below to see what I mean:

I tried to change these things:
- set Max Drift Speed to 100km/h
- move the chasis object down to lower the center of gravity of the car
- make the tires wider

but nothing of this helped.

Is there something I can do to stop the car from rolling in high speed drift? (Except making the tire grip lower than default as this makes the car very unstable.)

Thanks for help!

PS: Here is a screenshot of the surface geometry in case it's important:

Behavior of your car looks realistically. You trying to make too sharp turn with too fast speed.
Try to decrease "grip" option in wheel settings.
Also try to use handbrake. Don't stop push accelerator during drifting. It is big chance to roll if you stop brake or accelerate during drift.
Another problem with surface. You need more flat surface for drifting.

I see... I actually solved the problem by making the tires much wider, but thanks for the driving tips!
