pretty much, alot of power in a FWD car will always result in similar behavior

Yep, I bought it the week before. Mid November rode that week and then had my kidney stone surgery.

Chevy Camry, 5spd 4cyl. Slow as hell, but hey that suits my driving style just fine, and the Toyota transmission is a slick unit. "The Zen of cruise control"

But I'm running on 11.5" tires and need a new steering stabilizer and steering pump soon (Both have really slight leaks-easy to repair, but I'd rather cough up $200 and swap in a Durango steering box and OME stabilizer), so once I get it a little stiffer down there, it should be better.

I've read it had very little. I think many or the newer FWD have issues with torque steer because of macpherson strut suspension. It pulls the steering axis too far out of wack.

Also, that's an air splitter on leafy's car. It kind of like a wing for the front

But if you started a burnout in the left lane you would quickly end up in the right lane with a toronado.

FWD get it because of open diffs and un-equal length axles. Nothing to do with the steering axis.
