Default Set up handling question

Ok go easy on me guys. Very new to on road.

I purchased a used yokomo GT4. I have been messing around with it and mostly practicing on driving it with more precision. It has a solid front dif and an open rear dif. No anti roll bars front or rear.

I Have ordered a setup station but not received it yet. But with calipers and a camber gauge have set one degree camber and toe in on the rear. Two degrees camber and toe out on the front.

My question is should a car handle the same in right and left turns. Power on I experience a push in left handed turns and a oversteer power on in right hand turns.

Is there some physical property that I am missing like airplane will roll faster in one direction verses the other with the torque of the propeller?

If you could provide links to sources I could read up on this.
I have also ordered the XXXmain book.

Thanks. That does give me a direction to look at. Glad that it is possible to set up the car to handle identically turning both ways.

Another question is the perfect set up possible or is it always a compromise or something your always searching for.
