Another factor in this equation would also be drag brake. I have noticed that some of the shaft cars have a tendency to push entering a corner, and some belt drive cars have too much steering entering the corner. As a free drivetrain wants to keep spinning, the tires will not loose contact patch with the surface, thus giving more traction(to make the car push). With a drivetrain that is less free, the tires want to stop before the chassis's enitra slows down, thus giving less traction(to make the car more touchey/oversteer)
A "Push" (understeer) is caused by having LESS grip at the Front
Tires compared to the Rear.
The term "Loose" (oversteer) generally refers to the Rear
of the Car having LESS grip. Sometimes the term can also be used to describe less grip at both ends.
Having a free spinning drivetrain with low drag is always a benefit. This is why many R/C manufacturers are moving over to shaft drive designs.
