Left thrust?

Hello all,
I have a Wattage Piper Cub400 that I maidened this past weekend and I noticed it was pulling hard to the right which I couldn't correct even with full left trim. I landed removed all the right thrust and it flew better, but still has a tendency to pull right a bit and the left turns are sluggish to control input with neutral trim. I checked and re-checked all my rigging and everything measures fine. So.....I was wondering if a degree or two of left thrust would help it fly better. I am running a Nippy 400 direct drive with an APC 8x6 prop. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

How does it glide motor off? If it still pulls with motor off i would guess that its a warped wing to some degree. If it dose not roll in glide then i would say a couple degrees would do it. But i still suspect the wing may have a little more up twist on the left panel. Hope this helps
