As I got going faster I turned the wheel further around to try and keep it in the lane and not drift towards the outside, but the car almost felt like my Jetta I had light years ago.
You're doing it wrong.

Lots of talk in this thread about bad tires and bad alignment, but the greatest tires in the world and the bestest performance alignment won't make the car defy physics. If the car is understeering because you're hard on the gas mid-corner, and your response is to add in more steering input, the car is just going to continue to understeer. Great tires and a better alignment won't change that.
