Rearend being slightly out of square with the car could do it also.

Does it do it everywhere or one track? If the track has grooves worn it can move you sideways.

Get it on a good alignment machine. My guess is the rear end is out of square. As stated in a post above.

4 link car?

I have checked rollout. They are within a 1/4” of each other

There are so many things that can cause the rear to steer one way or another during a burnout.
I would definitely be checking to make sure your rear end is squared in the chassis first. Second, I would be taking a good look at your corner weights. Especially since you said the back of the car is washing out to the left. Typically, you would want more weight on the RR. This would make sense in your situation. Is this a 4 link car, with anti-roll?

Yes it’s a 4 link but NO anti-roll

This. With that much weight on left rear I would say if you are pulling big wheelies it would be going to the right. Scale it get more weight off the left rear tire and it should work better.

I figured it was not pulling the front wheels or it would go to the right. I think if you move some weight off left rear it will fix it.

That is assuming it is not a problem with track not being level.
