Hi there, there are many possible reasons for what I just saw, the most likely being that the car is setup for drifting. Do you know if that is or isn't the case? Is this car new to you? Has it ever worked as you expect? IS it 4wd? If so, are all 4 wheels actually being driven? Try to give us as much info as you can.

I would say that you still have damage in that area, disassemble everything around that wheel and check it, including the shaft on the thick side of the arm, to the right of your thumb in the pic above. As you say, it worked, then it crashed, now it doesn't, the parts need to be right for it to work reliably, especially for drifting.

Are you sure the driveline is working ok. What happens when you turn one wheel by hand. Perhaps one of the differentials has a problem?

Turn each wheel by hand. If all the wheels turn together in the same direction when you turn each wheel, then your diffs are locked and do not have a problem. If you see any other behaviour let me know.

i think i fixed it, i'm a car mechanic and so im quite familiar with it, i chanced the position of the wheels i made it so that the wheels are like (toe in) https://www.google.nl/search?q=toesp...hp%3B491%3B223 and mine rear wheels where only touching the ground with 10% of the surface now they touch 99% so i have more tration

sorry again for the bad explantion
