Yeah there is more too it, but yes this is the same logic that leads to "staggered tires (wider in the back) will induce more understeer." Which is a fancy way of saying, the front tires will break loose before the rear in a corner; because the front has less traction becasue the tires are narrower. Plus these cars are set up for understeer from the factory because it is a more "natural" reaction (when going too fast aroud a corner, car wants to go straight . . . instead of swapping ends)
