Default 1/12 Scale Pan car questions RC12

Just got my used but very nice RC12 pan car today, I am planning on running it in our oval class, gonna put a nice late model body on it. Anyway, I drove the car for the first time today, on carpet with foam tires treated with tire treatment, the car pulls to the left severely under power exiting the corners, I worked with the clutch a bit but couldnt fix it that way, I am not familiar with pan cars and the way they work and are adjusted, I didnt get a manual with the car either, ANY IDEAS on what I can do to get this car to straiten out a bit under power, its going to be a rocket , has a nice novak esc and a fast motor, just cant get on it the way it is HELP

Biggest thing I would check is the tweek of the car. Then if that does not help make sure that nothing is cracked in the front end that could be causing the car to change on you.

Post a picture of your car and we can point you in the proper direction of a manual for it. Tweek is when one tire has more pressure on it than the opposite tire so it tends to go in that direction. There are tweek screws on the car to help adjust this. But we could use a picture of your car so we can help you out further because they have different designs.
