Default Front End Crazy off the line

Has anyone noticed the fronend of their car dancin' all over the place when launching off the line??? Is this normal for frontwheel drives?? Seems the more mods I do for HP the worse it is to hang onto.

Question is..... What'* going to happen when I add the Giggle Gas next month???

That'* torque steer and seems characteristics of FWD cars. I think ZZP makes a torque bar or some sort that counters that reaction.. but you might want to ask WillWren cause he was supposedly workin on something to eliviate that problem.
