I have observed this when going off highway ramps - my tires seem to lose traction quicker turning right than turning left. I have had my alignment adjusted just a month ago, and tire pressure is within normal range. I was thinking maybe it's due to weight transfer, since driver is sitting on the left side. Hmm, any thoughts? Or could it have anything to do with the ATTS? Thanks.

The engine turns counterclockwise, when looking from the driver's side. Using the right-hand rule, curl fingers toward the direction of rotation, and my thumb points to the left (from the driver's point of view). That means the front of the car will have a tendency to go toward left. The higher the RPM the more it wants to go left. So if I'm turning right at high speed and high rpm (The front of the car will want to go left dramatically). Add to that the weight of the driver, that makes turning left smoother than turning right. That is the only logical explaination I can think of.
