If you have the ITF top plate : Check out the 4 rear screws.
It's happen to a friend : One screw was tweaking the car.

Default TC5

Some suggestions.

If you have a setup station make sure you have equal toe-in left and right on the rear.
I have noticed some arm mounts (blocks) give incorrect toe-in.
Make sure you have the same rear degree rear hub carriers left and right ( 0 or 1 degree)
Check droop settings are correctly done.
Try to keep the thread shock collar equal left and right.
Is your car weight balanced left to right about the same?
Make sure your wheel bearings are free and including the diff bearings.
Is your servo centering correctly?
Are your Tyres same diameter each side and glued well to the wheels?
Shocks working well smooth -no air bubbles? ...try softer springs too

Hope this helps

A misbehaving TC4 was corrected by just loosening its front ball diff (not too loose though). Until now, it tracks straight. Its been running on dusty
tarmac ever since.

Also if you are using the battery strap when you fasten try to get it just right -not too tight as it does bend and twists the chassis.
Check each shock bushing is fastened well
Front and rear arms not binding?
