Letís see how well I remember physics 101. No car, regardless of how properly balance, can defy the law of physics. When the limit is reached, every car (regardless how well balanced) will either understeer or oversteer. Even a four-wheel drift will start with one or the other. If you try to brake and steer at the same time, every car (again regardless of how well balance) will understeer. Thatís because during braking the weight is transferred to the front. The better-balanced car will take longer, but eventually it too will have to obey the laws of physics. If you accelerate in a perfect circle, the car will eventually oversteer because all the weight is on the back wheels.
