So let me start off by saying I'm not new to STi's. I had an '05 and it was awesome. Been through a few cars since then and now I have a '13 STi.
My question is simply to ask if it's normal, not to complain. I'm coming from a relatively high-powered RWD car back to AWD. I notice something that first took me by surprise but now I expect it and use it. Torque steer.
If I'm in a turn and I am on the throttle even a little, I have to adjust my steering angle to maintain my radius. If I lift off the throttle, the car dives into the turn and I have to adjust my steering angle maybe 1-2 degrees depending on my speed in the turn.
My question: Is this normal? Do I have loose muffler bearings or am I low on blinker fluid? Is my hyperhoophenator valve about to fail? I don't recall this behavior in my 2005 STi and I'm just wondering if it's something of a design change. I can plainly see why it would be happening and it's not enough to cause me to think something is setup wrong/malfunctioning. The important thing to note is that I am coming from a RWD car so my senses of vehicle dynamics are still used to that experience.
