Finally got the car up and running today!, however can't seem to get the car to go in a straight line!!, had a look at car, slightly bent left side driveshaft, very small, would this affect steering that much?. Had a play with trim, helps with problem, get to go straight for a bit, then it goes again!!?, not looking good for Sunday!!..any ideas?

hi, a bent drive shaft could cause binding which could cause the car to pull.
if its only very slight then chances are its something else causing the problem. best option is to get the car on a set up board and check the geometry, if your down the club ask one of the guys, lots of people have them down there, i have one and will gladly put your car on it if you want, give me a shout at the next meeting if you'd like me to have a look.

The bent driveshaft could be the problem. I had a bent driveshaft last week, and it caused all sorts of problems in the hub. :( But it kept in a straight line.

Suggest that you look at your wheel bearings.
