Maybe my tyres are ****, I was told they were pretty rubbish ones (Falcon)
If you have trouble keeping grip, it's a driver error not a car error, more power will make it easier to understeer but i don't think it will cause any dangerous problems having more power.
it's a matter of not putting your foot down too far to keep it under control, but you won't go off the road in a front wheel drive car unless you are turning around a corner and hit a bump, or suddenly decelerate/hit the brakes. because as long as you are in a straight line the torque steer helps to keep the car facing forwards if you are on the gas.
u gotta be a lot more careful on bumpy country roads though
