Welcome to the lowered world...The wheel alignment of lowered cars is completely different as with the normal ride-height equivalents.
A lowered car tends to go straight forward when it is forced to make a sharp turn...the alignment is changed to an as-good-as-possible alignment and as long as the car drives straight forward, there is no problem, but as soon as the wheels are turned a lot or completely the wheels are totally out of alignment and therefore the car wants to go straight forward instead of following the requested direction.
I always have to turn my car slowly in winter when it is slippery; otherwise it will hit anything that stands in front of the car...
