Hi Bob,

The normal understanding of understeer/oversteer is either with no throttle and no brakes, or just enough throttle to overcome tire scrub and keep the car moving at constant speed.

What's your context when you say oversteer? At the rear, any longitudinal force (throttle or braking) is pushing traction closer to the edge of the tire's traction circle, which means we're pushing closer to oversteer. And, with a front-heavy car, the traction circle diameter at the rear is relatively smaller, so we're more sensitive to throttle/braking "upsetting" car balance.
