Default Pulls to right under acceleration

My PT is an 03 79K 5 speed. When going up through the gears I feel like only the right front tire is accelerating. It has a slight pull to the right. Is this normal? My sons say they can feel a slight vibration, I don't feel it, but then I am "old" according to them, just love those kids.

Has the car been aligned? Fixed the vibration and pulling issue for me. Got worse the faster I was driving

Yep, had new tires, good ones, and aligned about 3000 miles ago.

In this case FWD = Front Wheel Drive and in Kevin's case, with his horsepower, It'll try to jerk the steering wheel right out of your hands.

although it's not a true LSD, the PhantomGrip does help eliminate the one wheel peel

In recent years I'm starting to hear some good feedback about the PG. This one from you just adds to the positive list. At first word was unsure. It's certainly a much more economical way to go. I know THIER over at The Crew has had one in for YEARS and had no problem with the PG and he's just "a little faster than ordinairy" Isn't he around 3rd on the fastest times list?

Is your tranny an AJ rebuild?

i was there when Tom ran his 12.1? i think. He wasn't even pushing it as i 'think' it was his 1st or 2nd time out with the new engine.

Yes, AJ did my tranny rebuild. I'm going to replace the solenoid? and have a fluid replacement done.

sorry op.
