Kido,

1. Tire pressure even?
2. Is the road surface level?
3. Car aligned?
4. Tread wear uneven (try rotating tires)?

My car's steering is a bit off...doesn't bother me too much.

hahaha you guys should try out the celica GTS
when the lift in the vvtl-i kicks in it goes from 1 degree off to like 20 degrees off!

hahaha damned torque steer. When i got the car the first time i thought i blew out the tires or i messed up the car! i never driven a front wheel drive car with that much torque steer for a stock car. not even the type r was that blunt.
