I've always heard that the car will tend to want to go the direction the wider axle is heading.

Wider front-end is good on wet, wider rear-end is good on dry.

Something I noticed years ago, with a wider front when you skin up to the wall the rear goes in slightly more. This makes the car drive off the wall automatically. A narrow front will suck the car into the wall and tends to keep it there if the car touches it. SLEEPY
