Im running a l4 on carpet. my car runs faster on the straight away if i turn slightly right(slight drift). in the turns i can hear what sound like the tires rubbing and it slows down a bit. i have it set to factory specs (caster and camber) toe in looks straight. Whats wrong?

Check your rear axle spacing and make sure it is centered in the pod...measure from the balancing hole to the edge of the rear wheel on each side, it should be the same.
