Had the same problem with mine too. Took everything apart and started measuring/checking. For me the tweak was caused where the plastic bulkhead screws into the side of the aluminum motor mount (when looking at the pinoin gear the screws fore and aft of the pinion). Tried to file it flat but could not get it perfect. So I just run those screws a quarter turn loose so they will not introduce tweak into the chassis. Also, the turnbuckle that bridges the gap between the top deck and rear end was too short actually causing the rear of the chassis to curve up.

Once I got those two problems sorted out the car is so much better to drive.
