An even worse mistake is to oversteer
to correct your oversteering.
How to handle oversteer
The car is turning more than you want it to, because the rear tyres have lost grip.
On the contrary, the less [k.sub.[phi]], the less cornering stiffness of rear axle and the oversteer
tendency is increased.
Engineers like Carl Sandberg at Volvo have to monitor and adjust their calculations to make sure bumps and lateral loads in bends result in predictable outcomes for the driver, including pitch, yaw rate and oversteer
This engages the front axle when required for traction or to combat oversteer
, but otherwise the car remains rear-driven.
Even when the rear is deliberately provoked into sliding out (oversteer
) -- the very edge of a vehicle's grip -- the highly automated prototype makes the necessary corrections to follow its path safely and consistently, time after time.
Drifting is a technique that involves the driver deliberately pushing their car into a controlled oversteer
motion throughout a series of corners.
It takes a certain ability to balance the car in order not to oversteer
and crash, and like everything else, practice makes perfect.
alarm is mounted on the steer doily along with a wireless audio alarm with lights for the tractor cab.
Hamilton said: "In practice we went from one end of the spectrum to the other, from acute understeer to huge oversteer
"I had an oversteering car, I had an oversteer
