On topic: If your tail end swinging out then you're turning too fast. Make your turns slower, stay under 2000 rpm.
Some idiot passed me in an Escalade yesterday. It was snowing. I was doing just slightly over the speed limit, and there was a double yellow line. Yet he felt his 6000lbs SUV on all-season tires was being held up unnecessarily. Unfortunately he didn't end up in the ditch (that I saw anyway).
