Completely normal, tires will help that a lot also. If you are getting slight slip from the tires they are fighting each other. When my Michelin PSS are new torque steer is at a minimum but as the heat cycle and loose grip it's gets worse.

The "weave" comes from you trying to counter the torque steer before the car does. This adds up to overcompensation and you end up "weaving". A tight grip and learning to manually compensate less reduces this.

:whs: Since you already have a RMM and Traction bar, tires and suspension mods are all you got left, but being a torque monster we will always have SOME torque steer. Just be glad it isn't as bad as a Mazdaspeed 3 or Neon SRT4.

I've noticed this also, either "fight it" less and give the car a moment to fix it for you, or disable stability control (press and hold the ESC/Sport mode button for 3 seconds) and fight it manually yourself without the cars help.

So looked over the front end and with a buddy we realized my two side motor mounts are pretty much toast. Looks like its motor mount time. I know the damond ones are amazing but very many monies.. whats the difference between them an JBR who is rated highly too

The problem I have with MI asphalt roads are the stupid ruts...It's like riding waves
That's my biggest problem, there will be lines, cracks or raised filled spots and when you roll over them your car will follow them like it's on rails...


But as to the weaving, when you give it the beans, the car will pull one way, then a split second later you counter steer to get it back going straight, then when you let off your still trying to steering into the TQ so it then goes back the other way for a split second until you either re-correct and get back into the gas. Just the nature of most FWD cars when a lot of torque is added (unless you have a magical type R...)

Have you checked out the turbotech passenger and driver side mounts? I have the PSMM and love it coupled with the Mountune RMM. I haven't done the transmission (driver) side mount and probably won't bother at this point as I feel that the engine is mounted perfectly for me.

Yup totally normal. I almost learned that the hard way when boosting in a turn. Won’t be doing that again. :doh:
