    My stock 601 seems to have a good bit of torque steer. Hit the gas it goes right, let off it goes left.

    It is if nothing else consistent.

    Am I the only one?

    Maybe the chassis is a bit soft and twisty?

    That smacks of wear in one or more of the suspension/steering joints bushes. Examine and fix accordingly.

    Probably in the front right bushings then. They seemed fine, I replaced the left side stuff though.

    Should have done it all at once, just really wanted to get it going!

    Took a good look at it.. All of the bushings are tight, and with no play. Like a new car!

    Me thinks it is a combination of:

    The rack has up and down play in the extendable part. Other trabi has the same play..

    The way I sit, and or the thick rim of the sport wheel( always have to drive with two hands on it-)takes way to much force than a normal manual steering car.

    To me, the way the wheel turns, seems dinky-like a golf cart! Not at all sooth, and fluid. Yes it was greased, and the play was adjusted. Maybe it is worn out, or was always like this.

    A bigger, thin rimmed wheel would help a good bit. Can't think of any thin rim old wheels, that take a pin to hold them on.

    Not a fan at all of the sport wheel.
