I've had 2-3 instances where something similar has happened with my fk04.

Check the bearings in the hubs. One can be siezed or extrememly bad compared to the others and cause this to happen.

Check the camber links of the car and make sure there is no binding.

I'm not sure the effect, but I have had a bad thrust bearing cause me problems. The really small balls that are caged in a washer inside one of the outdrives was busted. According to my manual it is part # 309072

check to see if your fk05 is an xray not a tamiya.

Guess I will replace the bearings in the hubs. I already changed the thrust bearings in the diffs so I doubt it is that.

Im actually waiting for the TA-05R to come out , if priced right I may get that as a primary or secondary ride.

check the hinge pins, shock shafts, shocks, front axles, castor blocks, and steering knuckles.

sometimes when my car is acting wierd and i can't find the problem, i do a complete teardown. usually just taking it apart will either reveal the problem or fix whatever was loose.

Check the arms for hairline cracks. I had same problem with my T2 and found both front arms with hairline cracks. One of them did not show up unless I twisted arm with my hand.
Good luck.

Check your steering endpoint adjustment. You probably have more steering left than to the right. Nobody ever checks that.

Ended up being a bearing. In particular, the rear right on the outside of the hub.

Replaced the four in the back and am ordering a new complete set just to have things all even.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
