Exmark Zero Turn drifting left at full speed

Just have a few questions on my Exmark Zero turn. Looking to fix it up and sell it, the machine is at about 875 hours right now, obviously the machine has its wear and tear. First off, Im having some trouble with the control handles on the machine. First example when im accelerating and i reach maximum speed the machine tends to drift to the left, and obviously the left handle goes farther down then the right. Does anyone know how to realign the handles so this doesn't have to happen? Also what color paint is the Exmark Red, and where is the cheapest place to get a few bottles, obviously the dealer will be the most expensive. Also the Treds on the tires are gone and should be replaced is there a cheap manufacture online that is more reasonable then a dealership? And also Exmark Stickers?

if it is an older one there is an adjusting rod on the right stick under the seat, only one side is adjustable to match the other side.

if it is a newer one the black plate where the stick goes into the frame has 3 bolts. loosen them and they can be slid back to make the sticks match then tighten them down.

best match for paint is International Harvester red. i get mine at tractor supply. decals will probably have to come from a dealer or internet search.
