I have owned this car for two weeks so I do not know hardly anything about the details in tuning; just the very basics

Servo is perfectly fine and just checked the steering linkage and they are the same. when drifting left everything is fine but when i drift right it acts like it is oversteering and just spins out immediatly. im not doing anything different from one side to the other. i tried different tires and stiffer shocks but it still does the same thing and spins out

Are you sure there is no binding or anything going on?

Make sure there is no binding in the steering. Disconnect the servo and manually move the rod. Make sure you have the same amount of steering throw in both directions when doing this. Also make sure tht the wheels both spin freely with no binding. Could be a seized bearing.

I know it sounds stupid, but does the car go straight or does it pull to one side?

which rod? see if the servo has the same amount of throw or the wheels? if for some reason there is a small bit of binding could greasing the bearing fix this? i am new to figuring this kind of stuff out so just bare with me

The one that connects to the servo horn. Move it and make sure there is no binding. While its disconnected check the servo and make sure it has the same amount of throw in both directions.
