When I launch or do a burn out my car (MKIV 97TT Manual) wants to turn/drift slightly to the left. Anyone have this same issue? What can I do to correct this?

Also, my MKIV leans a little to the left. What I mean is if I measure the distance of the tire to the fenders, there is a difference of 1/2" more on the passenger side then there is on the drive side... Could this be the cause?

my car does the samething but it is due to alignment issues, in your case it sounds like your drivers side (left side) shocks might be more worn than the passenger side (right side) so your car leans and drifts.

It is usually from the motor torque that pushes the car driver's side direction.

The best way I've heard to launch straight is the TRD rear diff.

TRD diff and diff mounts helped this for me quite a bit. Also check your tire presures as if one is low this could cause some movement as well.

I've got titan solid diff mounts on a non-trd diff. No problems at all launching straight.

Do the easy stuff first before dumping big money... alignment, new rear shocks, and solid diff mounts

A lot of older Supras (100k+ miles) have problems with the driver's side sitting lower than the passenger side. I had to get coilovers to cure the problem as have others on the board. I would imagine new suspension bushings would fix this.

My car has 33K miles, I'm going to check the bushing then go with a solid mount, at least as a start. Thanks guys, I now have a starting point and know where to go from here.
