Sammy, the only cars that don't have power-on understeer are ones that are so badly set up that the rear slides all the time.

The main reasons for power-on understeer are weight transfer (the car leans back, takes weight off the front tires making them stick worse), and the fact that most cars are set up from the factory to understeer a bit in all circumstances anyway.
