He's not talking about understeer. He just needs more traction. And as suggested, leave the nannies on unless you're at the track racing.

Better wheel/tire setup and some trailing arms should help out.

I run 305/45/18 drag radials on the street for a reason.

Better still - learn something called 'throttle modulation' as done by you the driver. Ultimately, TC on is going to teach you to be a "stomp & steer" kind of driver (not a compliment, BTW) . . . because it lets you get away with more right foot than you should be trying to use, and you won't be relating any amount of foot movement as being "about here is where too much starts".

That skinny pedal on the right really does have more than just two positions (closed and WOT). Learn how to use all the positions in between without using too much, all by yourself. Who knows - your dragstrip performance might just benefit from you better knowing where the limit is.

Your issue is rear end stability or lack of. My mods done to my car leaves my rear end as stable as the 2007 Stang GT I owned 2 years ago. 1st and 2nd gear runs were as stable and straight line as a rail road train. PM me if you want to know. After rear end upgrades an alignment is highly recommended. Also make sure your tire pressure is equal on both rear wheels.
