Most PCMS in many 4 or more speed autos will shift into a one gear lower when the temp is too high.

I really didn't notice the torque steer at higher speeds. The car actualy handled better than I expected. Even one of the Instructors asked me if the suspension was stock.

The only time I really notice it is when I come on a sharp corner unexpectedly, and in a nitrous WOT when it jumps into third gear, but getting use to it.
