Tendency of a vehicle to move off the straight line due to unequal amounts of torque reaching the driving wheels.
A tendency for a car to steer to one side when power is applied. A condition that is particular to front wheel drive vehicles.
It reflects the tendency of a car to turn in a particular direction with the application of power. Torque steer is common in front-drive cars as generation of uneven steering forces in the front tires is created by the reaction forces in the half-shafts.
When a car pulls to one side or the other under acceleration, due to strong engine torque. Typically occurs in either front or rear wheel-drive cars without limited slip.
In front-wheel-drive cars the driven wheels also do the steering, so as power is applied the driver sometimes feels a torque reaction back through the steering wheel. This may vary from a slight stiffening of the steering to an actual change of intended direction in high-powered front-drive vehicles.
The tendency of a FWD vehicle to pull to one side or to pull in the direction the wheels are steered when engine torque is applied. This can be minimized by using equal length halfshafts between the transaxle and wheels.

An outside influence, such as uneven front tire-tread wear, causing the steering wheel to turn right or left during hard acceleration, relating to the dual torque and steering requirements that are applied to the drive axle of front-wheel-drive vehicles.
A tendency for a car to turn in a particular direction when power is applied. Torque steer is common in front-drive cars because reaction forces created in the half-shafts can generate uneven steering forces in the front tires.
The annoying tendency of some front-wheel drive vehicles to pull to one side when engine torque is applied. In other words, you step on the gas and the car wants to steer right or left. By redesigning the power train to use equal length half shafts betwee
