    The front wheels are offset so they turn to the right when the wheel is straight, why did they make it like this?

    I'll try, but I'm quite sure this happened in the completely vanilla version

    It's because of bump steer from having a solid front axle. If you brake, it'll slightly veer back left. It's just a consequence of having a solid front axle

    I apologise for the extremely late reply, but I don't completely understand how it helps bump steer. I've done some research but it's still baffling. How does having some offset help bump steer? Wouldn't it make the steering worse if it was on the other direction?
