not so noticable with a stock motor...more prominant with a mod.
Torque steer is when a car tends to steer better in one direction than the other... I think..

It's a forced steer more to one direction compare to the other caused by certain amount of torque (of drive shaft++) that shares the same axis as the car's center line. Sounds somehow different but I think we talking abt the same thing.

I definately like the front bumper brace they added, looks like it'll make the front end very strong...

What's up with the shim under the motor mount, is that needed?

It shouldn't be much different than the R2, and my R2 has close to none...

Don't forget, the R2's motor is on the other side of the chassis (non web version) compared to TC3 (not sure about the R3). I haven't noticed ANY torque steer this past year with my R2- with an 8 turn It feels as stable as my 414M2 did. Just make sure you run the stock rear toe in.
