I had a torque/shift/steer problem at one point.
You could accelerate hard just fine, but that 30 mph 1-2 shift would push right I believe. I expected it, so wasn't much fuss.
In my case, it was winter tires on my GT convertible. Instead of the H performance rating, the tires were 97Q. You have to Google a chart to really get it, but H is 130 top speed while Q is 99. That difference comes from construction differences, which is mostly sidewall which translates to stiffness.
Long story short, if I wasn't completely straight during a full throttle 1-2, you'd feel the car wobble or lead as I assume the sidewall deformed during the maneuver. It would go away when I switched back to summer tires.
Those were some good traction tire, but was glad to swap them out finally after 3 seasons. The new ones have a much higher rating.
So, what are we using for shoes on that car?
