Steering Problem after drifting

good day fellow 1ers,

i wanted to ask you guys if anyone has experienced any steering wheel alignment issues after a few drifts. i made a few drifts last night on soft tarmac and suddenly my steering wheel is not aligned properly but the car is goin in a straight line. is this normal on these cars? do they go wrong after a few drifts?

I have noticed that when driving straight my steering wheel is not straight either - and I have not drifted the car. It's possible the previous owner may have.

I'd hate to have this situation if I had the perf steering wheel with the digital display - I'd want it aligned!

Go get an alignment, they should be able to correct that easily.
