Default Speed-T : Pulling hard to one side on throttle (out of the box).

Thanks for taking a second to read and possibly help. Enjoying the Team Losi Speed-T albeit a few issues. Upon hitting the throttle, she violently shoots to the left, thus making it pretty much uncontrollable. At a roll it is perfectly fine, everything is aligned. It did this right out of the box mind you.

With the 11.1v the car has lots of torque, so I can literally never hit the throttle without the car spinning out immediately or flipping due to the hard pulling to the left. I used the 7.4v and opened her up a bit. Once already moving, I can give it full throttle and it goes perfectly straight. The alignment is spot on. But again when I hit it from a slow roll or stop it's immediately pulling left. I'd love to accidentally flip due to a wheelie, my problem is out of the box the car simply will not go in a straight line when applying some throttle and torquing her.

I'm guessing it isn't the chassis as it's perfectly aligned, so what could it be? Is this a common issue? Couldn't find it anywhere on the net. Really appreciate any help at all, just want to play with this new and expensive "toy".

Small bump, won't continue. Just wanted a fresh look. Checked the differential, everything seems fine. I mean it's new after all.
