Default Car troubles?

Hi

Not sure if anyone has any ideas.... My mates car (Pro4) pulls heavily to the right under full power and I am not sure what the problem is. Under slight power ity drives perfectly straight but under full throttle it steers right??

Any help appreciated.
Thanks

Your ST(steering) Trim might be off. Adjust it on your controller. Or, adjust adjust the servo on the car. If all esle fails, bring it to a Hobby shop.

Check the tweak of the car. If there is more weight on one corner than another or vice versa side to side, it will make the car pull funny under heavy acceleration loads. Check your droop and ride height as well. Also check your toe in and camber. This can all lead to funny handling if something is out of place.

you have something binding in the suspension or dirve train a messed up setup. Have you checked the suspension on a tweek board? You could also be feeling the torque steer that's inherint in a shaft drive design

Sounds like there is too much weight on one side of the car, wayy too much, and the trim is also wayyy off.
