Fishtailing would be the rear end forcing itself back and forth through tirespin. What your talking about is torquesteer. Think about a fish...it doesnt have a flipper in the front going back and forth...its in the back..thus the tail part =P

A FWD car cannot fishtail.

I think you should have that looked at.
