Default Lots of possibiliites

1) Tweak - remember that tweak assumes the car is balanced ot begin with
2) Differential condition or quality of build
3) Shock oils must be same on both sides of the car if different this throttle push is likely also
4)droop settings in the front must be equal side to side.

My bet is the car is not balanced and therefore tweaked causing the car to squirt away from straight line.

Electronic glitch of your TX & RX. Check Battery Voltage, location of antenna, Motor caps, Motor brushes if not useing brushless motor.

Also, if you have previously been racing with nimh cells, there is a good chance you will need to change the preload on your suspension, or add weight to the lipo side of the car to get a good weight balance

Send a message via AIM to turd ferguson

Another thing to check is your one-way bearing (if applicable) and your blades on your driveshafts. I've had the car pull one direction on power because of those conditions
