Default TC6.1 Pulls Right -Help

Guys, need some help. Under power, my TC6.1 pulls right pretty severely. After the inital yank to the right, it evens itself out and is driveable.

Spool up front, gear diff in rear with 35wt oil. If it helps, running the "Sean Cochran" Snowbirds setup on carpet, 17.5 blinky.

I'm not a noob, been racing for over 20 years. The car is otherwise mechanically sound, free drivetrain, not tweaked, installed new bearings, CVDs are free and not bent, rebuilt the gear diff between rounds and that didn't even help. Aside from throwing this thing in the trash and starting over, I don't know what to do. I must be overlooking something, but I don't know what it could be. Any ideas?

I had a similar issue with my X-ray except it was pulling left. it was caused by a bad shock in the right rear which had almost no fluid in it from a blown shock bladder. When I would accelerate it would transfer all the weight to the right rear and kind of lift the left fromt. Maybe worth a shot at looking at your rear shocks.

You know, that makes perfect sense. And, I was so preoccupied with the drivetrain today, I didn't even think of the shocks! Thanks.

Other possibilities, uneven rear toe, uneven droop, servo or receiver glitch.

Its just the car I think... It gave me so much problem last reedy race I can't figure out the car pulls on one direction I practically took the whole car apart and it's still the same... Switch to Tamiya 417X problem solve lol... I think the chassis tweaks relatively easy ...
