Default holy crap i almost crashed

Just got home from airport, decided to have some fun on the way and hear my roush wot for the first time. Cruising at 80mph floored it and car violently jerked to my left, it scared the crap out of me. At first i thought was a slick spot on the road, so i tried again same thing happened but this time i was more prepared. Im thinking its alignment problem since traction light didnt come on. It would of been very unfortunate if i did lose control..... Guess i have to vist an alignment shop tomorrow.

Some massive torque steer going on. Sure it's not fwd . Could actually be tire related.

Tire that is worn unevenly or conical can cause it.

If you're only feeling the pull under acceleration I'd guess it's more likely a worn suspension component than alignment. Alignment you'd generally notice some all the time. Under acceleration you're shifting weight on the suspension which is where you'd notice a worn bushing or something.

Tires seems fine except for slight feathering. Theres a slightly left pull under normal driving too. Its not bad but under wot its violent. I think its alignment issue. Tire kingdom dont display caster, im wondering if i knocked it out spec when i hit the big pot hole a month back

Likely a worn lower rear control arm bushing.

On a 2013? I think you're just losing traction somehow.

Yea you wouldn't think on a 2013 anything would have worn out , but if his traction control is turned on a working it should have cut power instantly to the tires keeping him from loosing any traction .

it's a reactive system, it can only kick in after it detects wheelspin. on a damp road I can break the tires loose on my car in 3rd gear easy, and if the road is crowned it will start to fishtail before advancetrac gets on the job.

methinks the OP is exaggerating just a bit.

im not.... it was a very violent jerk to left. It felt like someone yank my steering wheel soon as i floored it. Traction control light didnt come, im assuming its my alignment. Im getting it checked out in a hour.Suspension shouldnt be worn already since its a 13 with 12k miles.
