Re: bravo pulls to right when accelerating!!

Which wheel you hit it with?

pulling to the right when accelrating usually means the left wishbone is damaged. As it pulls harder it's damaged mouts allows it to rotate clockwise, pointing the wheel to the right.

I'd certainly have the suspension looked at. It's not designed to take big impacts like that and remember it's what keeps the tyre on the road when you're going around corners at speed - so not something to skimp on! Wishbones aren't expencive (around £15) so not too expencive to replace if you need to.
