    Default Torque steer

    I'm still new here and to diesel's again but was wondering has anybody experienced the above on there car accellerating from 1st to 2nd resonably hard, It's not pulling across the road stuff but noticale to me. My last few car's were vectra b's all petrol and 1.8's, I'm hopping this isn't a problem starting already as i've had the car a week and it's only covered 4800 from new 08. Spec 1.9 cdti 150 design no tuning by me but the last owner was vx managment car any suggestion or is this just a big step up in power/lift.

    It's the HUGE increase in torque going from a petrol to a diesel mate. Even the it's only a capacity increase of 100ml, the jump in torque is monumental...
