Steering and Knowing the Terms

Sometimes you are going to have to know certain performance-related terminology when it comes to vehicles. One of the most important aspects of driving is steering. You need to have control of your vehicle when it comes to directions so that you can get to where you need to be safely.

One set of terms that you have to think about is oversteer and understeer. Oversteer is when the vehicle turns more than the command of the driver. The understeer term deals with the opposite which is basically when the vehicle turns less than what the driver commands.

It is important to know what your vehicle is prone to. One of the ways to know if your vehicle will oversteer or understeer is by looking at the different types of drive modes. After all, vehicles have different drive modes such as all-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and other modes.
