Thanks for the suggestions, people.

I did look carefully for wing warp visually, but could find none.

Boogie, its good to hear you've had some experience with these Cubs. To be specific, the plane rolled down the runway straight (20 ft maybe 30ft) on providing full throttle, but veered and banked to the left on takeoff, with a 30 degree angle to horizontal, even with ailerons pushed to extreme right. I was able to bring it down while in this looping condition. Tried to bring it in level, but could not get the angle of descent as close to horizontal as I could.

I have setup the new motor mount angle downward and right at 3 degrees each. I also plan to put in a head-holding gyro to make the takeoff easier.

Do you think I should replace the 16x10, or simply use 60-70% throttle instead?
Any (other) thoughts welcome.
