Default Handling when turning right

I have recently bought a Colt 10 4wd and have set it up. I have been testing it at a track in canberra located in Kambah. When running the car, all left turning works very well at any place on the track, however when I attempt to turn right, the car just seems to spin out extremely easily. This occurs even when I reverse the direction that I am travelling. Can anyone help.
My thoughts are
1. Crappy stock rubber tyres
2. Oil from exhaust being blown onto rear left tyre
3. Weight biased to one side of the car.

Thanks in advance to any help

1/. it should affect both side
2/. likely if you run your engine too rich
3/. likely.

you should also check for suspension blinding, ride high, chassis tweak.

Yes, you car sounds tweaked. Check the tyres, suspension etc etc. I've raced a few times at Kambah, that right hand sweeper off the straight is hard to master, is it just that turn or all right hand turns??

hey dude,

Check all your ball bearings that fit on the cvds or axles.....If one bearing is seized your car will not handle properly.....
