    ok- when i try stock cars- it pulls wicked bad to the left- cant run a straight line- wheel is all the way to the right and it's still pulling me left and slowing down the car because i have to let off gas to get it to straighten out some on straight stretches- what am i doing wrong? The AI even on 70% run away with victories and leave me almost a lap behind because I can't go flat out in straights due to severe pulling to left- The stock car legends I'm fine with- just the recent stock car vehicles cause me issues like this?- I note that he car is set to pull left of course- but it seems pretty extreme- and causes issues in the straights- I guess I'm doing something wrong?

    Standard setup at this cars is for driving on ovals, going left. That´s the normal circumstances where these cars are driven.
    I think in the tuning menu you can select a road-track configuration.

    ok thanks- i'll give that a try- the road options- Maybe my wheel isn't configured right or some thing too- I'll mess around with the settings and see if that is what was causing the massive pull-

    There's defiantly something up with the Indianapolis map and the cars- it doesn't happen on other maps- I ran Talladega just fine no severe pulling- the car was controllable, could corner nicely and straights were flat out fast- no left pull- or very little I should say. Pocono had a little pulling, but nowhere near as bad as Indianapolis

    There's nothing wrong with them. They're setup to turn left, like @peterchen said. They have different setups for different kinds of tracks, Talladega and Indianapolis are very different. If you don't want your wheel offset, you can change the rear toe offset in the setup.

    ok thanks I'll give that a try- I tried messign with tie pressures, and wing adjustments- but didn't think to try that- It's not that i don't want the offset- it just majkes it impossible to race agaisnt even the easiest AI setting- I can't get any speed in straights fro the reason posted above- and can only get about 130 in straights when I should be about 180 or so- I'll give that toe a try though see what happens

    stock car tips for road The motors in a stock car can chuck out something in the 900 horsepower vicinity, and with the torque on-hand, it’s not too difficult to overwhelm the rear tires https://thesensorystore.co.uk/bubble-tubes/ After all, the motor sits over the front axle. At oval speeds, the rear tires aren’t as traction-limited, but on road courses, it takes a delicate touch. At slower tracks like NASCAR drivers have to stay so progressive on the throttle that they’re only able to go flat to the floor at two spots on the track:

    Thanks Sensory- I'll keep that in mind- i was able to straighten out the touchy steering by doing what one poster said to change rear toe- it worked fine- didn't need much of a change, just enough to keep it from sliding left into the inner walls all the time
