How to control class E asteroid... cannot follow manouvre node without going off course

Question

Hi.

 

I have my direction of travel lined up perfectly with centre of mass. as close to centre as eyeballing it allows. i have RCS thrusters but when i thrust forward even 1/3 power with nuke engines the ship will veer off course with no way to bring it back other than shutting off engines and re-aligning.

 

is there a mod for fine tuning centre of mass or anything which helps control asteroid trajectories?

Thanks.

Alternate to Brent's solution is to make a puller, unlock the grabber so it can pivot and use engines mounted away from asteroid.

You can also make additional grabber craft with SAS/RCS and attach them around the asteroid.

If using this method, make sure you put your engines far enough away from the asteroid, or it will cause thrust issues.
