Well, you could certainly program your wheels to adjust speed when you're steering with my scripting mod. Something like: reads the angle of the front wheels -> calculates speed for each wheel -> set the speed slider - on every frame.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I have to try and do it.

Took me longer than I expected, but I made it.

However, it was impossible to eliminate all sideslip due to middle axis not steering and front wheels always being at the same angle. On actual vehicles, the outer front wheel steers a bit less.

But here it is:
To adapt this script to your machine, just change the identifiers to your wheels and the default speed to the speed you want.

I also included a visualisation of the turning point. It's the red sphere you will see when you are steering: if it's moving with you, you have sideslip, and if it's completely still you are steering efficiently.
It seems that at higher speeds, wheels tend to start drifting because of the lack of grip. Can't really help with that.
