    Could be a few things. Motor not soldered in properly. Not geared correctly, I would say too small of a pinion making it aggressive. Tires are too hard. Or control ohm is aggressive.

    Has it always done this? If not, what has changed?

    Add to the list to check: rear axle bushings worn or not soldered in, rear axle is not perfectly straight, & rear tires not trued.
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    All inline drive cars have 'torque steer' where the torque of the motor loads one drive tire harder than the other, both under acceleration and braking.

    I always brace the motor upright to the rear bushing to reduce the motor from bouncing as well.
