Bought the dlc a hour ago and test the cars......and the Mustang Fastback got the same issue like the escort. My controller is okay. Every other cars running straight. I really don't know what I have to think about that. Is that on ps4 and pc the same?

I think its due to how the rear end is in these old cars are set up (both the mustang fastback and the escort has a solid rear axle) , it only does it when you have the throttle down, and stops when you let up off the trottle.

we owned a escort mk1 and the car didnt pull to the right. only while breaking i had issues like pulling to one side. but to be honest it was on 1300 XL so comparing with the RS 1600 is laughable.
its not much that the mustang pulls to the right but you must recorrect the steering a couple of times on long straights.

it has something to do with the suspension and differential setup. try locking the differential by setting the decal and accel to 100%. im not an expert at car setups and tuning but it should help. I think it is similar to FWD cars when they have torque steer because one of the wheels is receiving more power than the other pulling the car to one side.

That and how the rear end tends to squat to one side when you get on it.

A car with solid rear axle with only leaf springs and shocks tend to suffer from this more then a car that is solid rear axle with leaf springs equipped trailing arms, and even less when the solid rear axle car uses coils, lower trailing arms, upper control arms, and panhard rod stabilizer.

The more power the car outputs also makes the issue more noticeable, then a car with less power.

and just one other thing to add when you are stationary and you give the throttle a quick blip the car lean to the right which means that there is less weight on the right side. on cars such as the mustang and escort they both have a open diff. so generally the wheel which has the least amount of weight on it will theoretically want to wheel spin. in this case the left is receiving more power so it turns to the right when under power.
