    @KX125dirtdemon Not sure but i think in mini is just pieces of rubber as suspension.

    @koponenii you would be correct there….although you can get springs instead!!

    if i was going to go to all the trouble of stuffing a v8 in a mini, it wouldn't be front wheel drive.. looks as if it's trying to rip the steering rack apart. Don't get me wrong, it ain't boring.

    Pause at 0:08, I think thats got something to do with it not going straight.

    @0187Koffi
    Thanks smart arse, but I was referring to the extreme 'toe-in' caused by the massive torque of the V8. Torque steer is caused by one wheel trying to spin faster than the other, not twisting the wheels towards each other.

    I predict tie rod failure.

    Heavy duty tierods and in order, this happens on gmc heavy duty pickups when doing 4wd lanuches

    Thats not torque steer, pause at 0:08, you can see both front rims. The reason its all over the place is because the tierods are on the FRONT of the wheel and not the behind, therefore when you grunt it the tierod is being squeezed but the force of the acceleration from the wheels. Look up DURAMAX tierod fail, its common in gm trucks and the fix is heavy duty tierods so they cannot bend.

    Wait, isn't torque steer something that only happens to turbocharged cars?

    @blainyrules no any powerful fwd car will give torque steer 🙂

    Install new tie rod bushings + check if the steering swivel bolts are tight and give her some toe out and im 99% sure that you wont have any more torque steer if you fix the above mentioned issues.

    Yikes, that car looks scary to drive… not because of the power, front end looks like it has a mind of its own… 😀

    chances are , there alot of old.bushing and mounting + bad alignment

    Looks like driver error to me, not torque steer.

    Why is the torque steer occurring AFTER he accelerates?

    thats filthy ugly thats not even torque steer
    what that is is an incorrect bump steer setup
    meaning as the car raises from the power the steering pushes the wheels in or out
    have a look the wheels have a massive amount of TOE in meaning they are pointing inwards meaning the rack has to come down so the wheels do not change as the car rises
