Default Car turning right

Hi, I have a fw-05RR and it suddenly started turning right even as the trimming is perfectly ok. Especially on acceleration it almost turns sharply to the right and I have to counter steer for it to go straight. I checked for servo damage but it looks ok. It only does that when it's on engine power. If I just roll it forward it goes straight alright...

Any ideas? ty

I just replaced the front cvd's just to be sure. The bearings feel ok. Tomorrow I will test if it helped.

Given the car a good smack lately into anything? If so you might want to check the suspension geometries.

Shaft Drive is also notorious for torque steer. Clean the car , check the car over. Check all linkages , see if everything is set properly.
