Default Torque Steer? or could it be something else?

OK so I have an HPI Nitro RS4 3 Type SS 4WD car w/ airtronics MX-3 94102 servos and when I drive it goes one way at low speed and straight at full and mid range speeds, I have tried to correct it w/ trims but to no avail. It started doing this recently though so is it torque steering or something else what can I do to fix it.

check toe in, camber angles, or for something loose, under power your front wheels will want to "toe out" you can see this by taking the body off, holding the car and accelerating slowly, notice how the front wheels turn outward, hope this helps,

ourque steer comes from having one driveshaft (axle) longer than theother. i havent heard of it in rc cars butthat is what cause torque steer in real cars. mostly front wheel drive cars. thats y pro import front wheel drive drag cars have ther engines turn inline instead of the normal way to eliminate torque steer.
