Engine displacement, better grip

I saw this video about an hpf m3, dinan m5, porsche and a ford gt. When the cars seemed to be going real hard the gt just blasts by them. I know they are like $200,000 cars but I also saw a video of a twin turbo gt that didnt spin the tires at all with like 1400hp and like the hpfs spin in 4th. I know bmws are 50-50 weight but would a mid engine create better traction?

50/50 weight distribution is for handling.

mid engines splace the weight in the rear roughly over the rear axle + Tire spin is driver error not hp related
