Model S long range refresh pulls hard left on hard acceleration. Need help!

I took back to dealer after delivery and they said it needs an alignment. When not flooring it car drives straight and true. After dealer fix ...alignment.... the car still pulls left when floored ( but not as bad) and when normal driving now pulls right. Steering wheel also not centered. Service manager said that I will have to decide which one I prefer. Even though I think I
have something else going on .... I am asking anyone with a long range refresh S if they have experienced this?
When I say it pulls left when floored I mean you better be ready or I would take out anything to the left of my lane.
Service center is Scottsdale Arizona. Am I correct to assume they are Full of ~~it and mine is flawed?
Also.... does anyone know of the hierarchy of Service Centers/ contacts/ managers if they offer no solution to get it fixed? Is there a Service regional manager???

Please comment if you have a new long range refresh!
 
That is my thought..... front or rear torque sensor/ management
went back today and they tried to tell me it is what all long ranges do. Can anybody confirm theirs does not?
Sorry but sounds like a crock of $h!t to me. My Volt never pulled under any load, even when I spun the tires. I think the tech is trying to abdicate responsibility here.

Mine does that, took delivery on it yesterday. Stopped by the service center and the Plaid tech drove my car. When he was able to replicate the left torque pull on aggressive acceleration, as well as the pedal/yoke vibrations between 30-60mph he confirmed his suspicion. He said that Tesla engineering is already aware of these issues, no fix available at this time.

Sorry, not much help here. But mine goes 100% straight every time. Steering wheel is straight also, alignment is good. What you're experiencing is not normal.
