It's common on front wheel drive cars where motor is installed horizontally. My ex-Audi A4 with cvt transmission suffered severly from toque steer.

In short, Id have to guess that you have may have:
1. Un-even suspension set up / car is not square. Disconnect dampers, sway bars and set droop making sure it's even, then connect sway bars again to see it's even, followed by dampers

2. You may have a weight issue, causing car to pull in one direction

3. Perhaps even a bearing that is binding?

If what I wrote is pedantic, my apologies.. Just adding my $0.02 and thinking out load.
Not at all thanks! However I have checked and triple checked those things. The weight thing was also looked at. The only thing I could think of was to add more weight to the right side of the car but that would unbalance the car. What is more baffling is the fact that two of us are experiencing this and run two different setups.

Maybe the car just has way to much power.
