Here is a pic of the Colt Porsche 962 body and where I was suggested to cut.
Will cutting these slits help to keep the car straight? Anyone have any other ideas or suggestions?
Is this happening at high(er) speeds, or during low speeds?
The car should run pretty straight without cutting holes in the body. Did it run straight before switching to this body shell?
I would check things like your steering trim, front alignment, toe in and camber. Make sure the bearings are running free, and nothing is dragging on the road or the tires are not rubbing the body. Does the car do the same thing with out the body....
