* Check all your bears are free.
* Check your droop settings.
* Make sure your right side shocks are the same length as the ones on the left side for each end of the car.
* Check your front toe settings and also make sure you don't have any bent pins that are hampering suspension movement.

- Check the chassis is straight (the top deck could have been screwed on out of line, twisting the car)
- Check that the steering assembly isn't excessively loose or sloppy.

Furthermore, I have a little guide to setting tweak on my website here. It's for a Yokomo SD, but the principles for setting the suspension are the same. It may help.

check for binding in the wheel bearings. and drive line.. also chk ball cups if worn they will cause servo not to center with the steering .. chk shocks . you might have a dead shock on one side of your car and make sure you car is tweaked correctly...
