Re: Torque steer!?!?

Torque steer is not really dependent on the number of cylinders to in an engine, but how the power is delivered to the wheels. It occurs mostly from in front wheel drive cars.

With the GC setup, most of the power goes to the right rear wheel, with a small amount applied to the right front.

A few things could be happening:

1. Something is wrong with your transfer case or speed sensors and most of your power is going to the front axel.

2. One of your brake calipers is not releasing and you are feeling brake drag.

3. The road is severely crowned to to the right.
