I found this to be a trait of the car in general. But there are quite a few things you can do to dial it out
I agree very much with method699 about battery position. Spent months experimenting with it, and found out its fundamental to the whole character of the car. Other brands pretty much prevent the user from finding this out by fixing the placement.
I've reached the point where I use 4 scales and measure F-R weight distribution, and run 8-10g more in the rear than the front (without bodyshell). Completely OCD but anywhere outside this margin and I start to run into problems with the car snapping at the rear in fast corners or with pushing in tight corners.
I run position F1 with C01L or R1 with C01(EX) and careful use of ballast.
Also maybe a couple of things to try, take a look at perhaps running the rear RC about 1mm higher than the front (use rcrollcentrev162) and play with the flex.
When I looked at and tried team setups I was left thinking 'These guys are Aliens' - it just gives you an insight into their driving ability to hang onto a car with so much steering
