Torque Steer

Ya know I love my car, but does anyone else have horrendous problems with torque steer? I used to get all wheelspin off the line, but after I replaced with sticky rubber, I gotta wrestle with the wheel.

Am I the only one?

Hey Vtec, I used to have that happen to me in my 99 once i put on the rims and sticky rubber. Love the tourque, but hate that it liked to steer the car where it wanted, almost like it had a mind of its own...possessed? heh

EDIT: seems to happen on a lot of the toyotas, I guess since all there engines have more Tq than HP?? not sure for the reasoning behind it, but my camry used to have field days on uneven roads.

i drove my neighbor's 2000 camry i4 and didn't feel much torque steer tho...not sure how much power difference the 2000 is from yours but the torque was nice and enough to get the car moving but didn't feel torque steer tho.

on the other hand...i got scared driving my maxima the other day haha i tried to make a left turn out of a parking lot and i floored it cuz cars were coming and the wheel was pulling left and right felt like i almost lost control =/

The old Camry 4 bangers used the 5-SFE motor which were awful, go look in Klex's thread about his 5-SFE camry and you'll see the specs on it. The new 4 cyl. which is the 2AZ-FE makes 157hp/163lb-ft SAE is an excellent motor. Low and midrange torque is great, I can dust most traffic without breaking a sweat or crossing 3,000rpm. Plus I can get around 28mpg city/38 hwy

Cool

Toyota dampens torque steer very well. It's not close to half of what nissan lets get through. Yall are compairing the low torque @ low rpm - toyota v6 too! (They only have enough power to do more than chip both tires without draggint he e-brake when mated with the M/T!)

That's strange, I don't watch Honda v6 dynos, but they must really lack some punch low down.


McElligott we need to get you some jbars. You're closing in on THREE TIMES stock power!

What do 2AZ-FE Solaras run at the track? Or has anyone even run one at the track yet?

Not many track runs, if I had to guess, I'd say [email protected] It kinda runs out of steam past 5000

Wow, so you think it will run about the same time as a stock 6G AV6? That's a strong 4-banger

Did you check your alignment? If you have torque steer, you need good rubber, not just sticky rubber and you need a perfect alignment.

I never had a huge issue abt torque steer with FWD V6 motors in Camry, Accord, Odyssey. Only in the winter is it an issue, but I have TCS so it helps to reduce that.

Considering the Solara weighs a good deal less than the AV6, and it moves off the line I wouldn't be surprised. But thinking over it again, that number might be a bit optimistic Maybe low 16's is more realistic

As far as the alignment goes, its fine. I didn't have this torque steer problem in either of my accords, and concerning the TCS, the wheels aren't spinning so that has nothing to do with it.

Actually, it made a difference on our 1997 Camry v6 xle with TRACtion Control. without trac on, especially on cold or wet roads, car would wheel hop like crazy, with TCS/TRAC, it has potential to help if both wheel are spinning at different speeds as it could possibly help to reduce torque transfer if necessary. Hopefully I am making sense.
