It's that way because the motor is out a bit off the centreline of the car compared to some others.
Honestly though, I seriously think your worrying too much about it. I have never corner weighted my car, just balanced it to get it close left to right. And then tune the weight balance for performance. 100% of the time I run the battery in the rear position, and have 20g mounted at the front of the car, and 5g in the middle. The car is heavy yes, but it can be lightened up.
I still think lost of the issues your experiencing are down to setup and/or tyre prep. Sent a pm yesterday to try and help out.
