Don't go by the air pressure in the tire. Measure the circumference of each tire. I use one of those cloth measuring tapes.

It does. Should help tracking, but not the fast turn in one direction. It's not that it can't be figured out and adjusted. avguy is correct in measuring circumference.

So I figured it out. The traction bar was not set up properly from the dealer which was causing excessive braking on the right hand side. Which is what led to it pulling to the right. Quickly made some minor adjustments with the manual in hand and now it does it ever so slightly. Had better striping and easier to cut. I'm down to approx 50-55 mins cutting the ENTIRE lawn (In 1st gear-->still getting used to the beast!!) which previously took me 3.5 hrs to do!! Adjusted the deck height so I'm at 3.5". I absolutely love this mower!! Simple to make adjustments and easy to adjust deck height.
