of course the big swingers on here knew best
It's hardly about being a "big swinger" Advice is a good place to start but it's sensible to put your own experience ahead of general advice- I read the advice, tested it, it informed my opinion but it doesn't overrule my experience.
Mind you it also led me to conclude that if I'm ever asking "which end should I put my crap tyres on" the answer is the skip end.
Oh... fwiw I think the car does make a difference too, some are more stable than others. If you lift off the throttle of mine mid corner, it's really undramatic, just gently and smoothly starts to slow. Big lazy engine, slow throttle response, flat power curve... So no abrupt weight transfer to the front. But it's quite heavy, so it asks a lot of the front tyres if you change direction in a hurry and it literally made the difference between turning, and going straight on. That's a big deal imo. But maybe a lighter/more agile car would make the turn and then the rear end would lose grip and cause a problem.
