Default Side stepping 1/18 TC car

I have a brushlees 1/18 TC car 4wd, 2 gear diffs, shaft drive. When I punch it at low speed the rear end side steps to the left which causes the car to pull to the right. Should I use thicker grease in the rear diff to correct this? I am using a Tekin RS Gen 2 spec esc in the car.

I am not sure what side step means. Do you mean the cars rear end slides out? A thicker rear diff grease will cause more oversteer.

This is because the thicker the rear diff is, the more equal power you have going to both rear wheels. When one tire reaches its grip limit, the other one will soon follow.
