You don't need a 180º penché. That would be acrobatic, and not a correct ballet line.

hey, you know for a penchee, my working leg sometimes slants to the supporting side. is there any way to correct that?

i can get my splits square and i have an average to good arabesque. (just f.y.i.)

Slants TOWARD the supporting side? That's not common, but it's seen, sometimes, when the student tries too hard to get the leg straight in back, and crosses over the midline. Don't let it do that. You are in charge of your body. You tell it what to do, and don't take "no" for an answer. Learn where straight back is, and how it feels, and how to get there. You may need some prompting from your teacher, so mention it before class sometime.
