Default Team Associated TC7 Torque Steer????

Hello,

Having a bit of trouble with my TC&, its driving me nuts and I can't work it out!

While racing this weekend, when on full power the car had the tendency to pull left, quiet a lot!

If adjusted the roll bar, shocks, aligned the toe front and rear, everything is nice and tight with thread lock.

If the power goes on gently its not as bad but still pulls.

Any thoughts or experience with this?

Cheers.

Is the chassis tweaked or is there more friction on one side than the other?

Could also have a bad bearing on one side of the car.

Chassis is ok, but haven't checked the friction.

Bearings seem ok but worth checking out.

Thanks guys, think I'm going to have to do a full strip down and rebuild the front end.

Also check weight distribution and spring preload. You want it to be even left to right. The sway bars can also tweak the suspension if not adjusted correctly.

Wheel bearing shimming or overtightening of the wheel nuts: you might need to shave the back of your wheel hexes... It happens alot to the AE cars....

--I had a receiver do that to a servo on a a TC last month. On the bench , a quick blip to full throttle made the steering servo go left for a split second.
I replaced the receiver , but rerouting the antenna wire would probably have fixed it.

--Sounds more like a bad bearing in a hub , it can't take but so much pressure , then it locks up,or drags.

I would check your droop settings make sure they are equal on both sides (left and right)in the rear and front arms.
