Why do so many Mustangs spin out when accelerating quickly?

The narrow tires are the main issue in my opinion. Many cars, including mine, came with 235-width tires, which isn’t sufficient for over 400 horsepower. Switching to wider tires right away improved my car’s stability. However, the rear of the car also contributes to the problem. When the rear suspension moves up or down, the axles shift sideways due to the panhard bar

I heard a professional drag racer mention that the original rear bearings are not great, and they think this is a big reason for the problem. However, skilled drivers don’t seem to experience this issue.
