    Unhappy got a big problem

    Now I know, I know it's not an LsX so I i don't know if you'll help me but it's worth a shot, I have 1966 G.T.O. with a stock 12 bolt housing, 4.56 richmonds-mini-spool-richmond 33 spline axles etc.and it's a stock 4-link setup. now the problem I'm having is when I touch the throttle at all the car feels like it wants to TURN left, it's not tweaking from the torque, it stays lays level under light acceleration, but still feels like it is turning left, and then when you let off it straightens up, the chassis including the wheels stays straight, atleast it feels like it, but the body feels like I stated above, any help with this would be greatly appreciated, It's a very hard thing to explain-if I need to clarify something let me know, thanks in advance.

    the car:
    66 goat-

    kaufman racing heads

    Sounds like torque steer. If you have no dif( spool) the twist has to react somewhere. You could put stiffer mounts at the trans and the engine to lesten the feel.

    Just to be sure, check for a cracked frame. Especially up front.

    I had the fram and the 4 link set-up checked, all is well I even checked the axles, spool etc. and all checked out ok, I'm at my wits end here, I am open to any suggestions anyone might have on this, thanks

    I have solid motor mounts+torque strap(solid steel, from head bolt to frame) same with the trans. It seems like torque steer to me too, but it just started doing this like 3-4 months ago, it's had the new engine in for 9 months, IDK, I guess I'll start with bushings and go from there, in the mean time if ANYONE has ANY suggestion, feel free. Thanks

    If there are no cracks in the frame, and it isn't twisting, then it must be bushing wear somewhere.
