my thoughts..

- your car may not be running on 4WD. check the front right axle, it may be loose.

- your droop settings are not consistent. the left rear may be getting more grip.

Is the preload spacer on the shocks equal each side? (bearing in mind the weight on each side of the chassis needs to be taken into consideration too).

That may cause a few handling issues.

I had the same problem with my initial build, I was told to check my shocks.
I did and found my spring compression was off a bit. I also did a rebuild to match the oil levels. The problem basically fixed it's self after that. Keep in mind the weight balance too, if you can check the corner weights. (use four scales)

Long story short, check your shocks and recheck them again. I used the Losi tools as well and it can still be off a little bit, but the tool can't assess or fix weight distribution issues.
