Default Full Throttle Handling Issue

My T.A. Nitro TC3 Plus has quite a bit of power. when i give it full throttle, the car banks right uncontrolably forcing me to slowly increase speed. the steering is fine and the car runs straight. could it be the differential or the toe settings on the tires? also, when the car isnt running, i keep the car in one position making the wheels "skid" and manually turn the drive shaft. when i do this, the front left wheel slightly turns right while spinning. could this contribute to the problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

check for glitching in the steering servo, check your diffs,and it's probably torque steer.shaft cars are known for that

Check your CVD's make sure there are not binding. When a Cvd is not able to rotate freely it will cause the wheel to slightly turn.

make sure that the rear toe is equall both sides as if it is different, this can cause the car to go sideways under acceleration also

Default Full throttle

I have had about 6 or 7 NTC3s, and for the most part, they were great starter cars with very little problems. One of the cars had the same problem you are having.
I checked the diffs,bearings,toe,tire diameter,servo binding,looked for bent shafts, everything I could think of.
After fighting the car for about 2 weeks, I finally found the problem.
The actuall size of the front hubs were not the same as far as width.
I installed new hubs,set the track width,and checked the toe again, and the car was fine.On one of my trips to Associated, I took the old hubs with me and showed them to one of the guys there. He actually measured the hubs with a caliber because he could not believe the difference in size from the old hubs to a set of new ones.
Anyway, some of the manufactured parts to vary somewhat.
Check your bearings, cvds,driveshaft,servo from binding. Take the car completly apart if you need to.
As one of the othe posts stated, shaft driven cars do have torque steer, but it should not be so bad as to where the car is uncontrolable.
