Generally speaking, not fun unless done deliberately as a stunt (or do to a spinning fwd/rev transition, or for the really skilled, a recoverable 360-degree spin).
Crap like this is where professional instruction at a track comes in REALLY handy.
End-swapping/snap oversteering behaviour is typical of vehicles with a rear weight bias. Imagine a weathervane, and that's bsically what rear engined cars do, they'll slide with their heavy end going first (in the case of cars like a 911, the motor -of course- hangs out well beyond the rear axle).
ANother note: mid engine cars will oversteer, and they'll most certainly spin, but they *generally* don't suffer from end-swapping snap oversteer as badly as rear-engined cars do.
Okay sorry for the long-winded explanation... back to the subject at hand.
BTW a well-built kit would be a lot of fun!
I'd have to look at one of these in person before passing judgement on how well-built it is though.
