The Ford Fusion Stockcar pulls to the right indefinitely.
I have tried every available setting, but it has made little to no difference.
- Feels like the left rear get 100% of the power
- Occurs the most during acceleration, does happen at time on straights/into corners/decelerating


The audio in-game often does not load the Acceleration/Deceleration in cockpit or in 3rd person view
- After a reload, the audio usually fixes itself

ps. LOVE the C7!! Thank You!

Some more details would be welcome.

- What controller do you use?
- How strong is the effect?
- Does it happen even when accelerating slowly?
- Could you post a short video with the telemetry HUD enabled?
- What settings did you change, and how?

Pulling to the right is torque wedge. It's a real reaction to driveline torque being fed to the solid rear axle. As an extreme example of the situation, check out this image and imagine what both cars are wanting to do purely as a result of driveline torque.

Out of pure curiosity, is there a reason why it pulls to the right and not left? Or is it just coincidence that the three cars in the images are pulling to the right?

It has to do with how the engine is mounted, horizontally.

Direction of rotation of the engine. Were it spinning the other way (or mounted backwards) you'd get the opposite effect. Transverse engines, as you'd expect, do the same reaction but it is fore/aft as the engine is mounted at 90 to the car.

You learn something every day. Thanks Rambo and Casey!

It's a very common effect of a mass in rotation. Propeller driven aircraft also suffer from it. It's the reason multi-engine propeller aircraft such as the Dash-8 or Hercules have engines that spin in opposite directions. Left engines will spin clockwise while right engines will spin counter clockwise. The rotational forces of the 2 sides will cancel each other out mak8ng it easier for the aircraft to fly straight.
