Refers to a surfboard that is hard to turn. This is an advantage in bigger waves as it is less likely to wobble or do something unpredictable
When the front tires don’t turn well through the turn because the front tires are losing traction before the rear tires are. When a car is tight, it also means it’s “pushing.
Same as pushing.
Also known as under steer. It's when the car is difficult to turn in the corner because the front end pushes toward the wall.
Also known as "understeer." A car is said to be tight if the front wheels lose traction before the rear wheels do. A tight race car doesn't seem able to steer sharply enough through the turns. Instead, the front end continues through the wall.
The front wheels lose traction before the rear wheels, making the car difficult to turn.
This means a car is pushing--the front tires aren't turning well through turns because they have less traction than the rear tires.
When a car is having problems steering due to a lack of grip in the front tires the car is driving tight. When trying to drive around a corner the car will want to continue straight.
When the front of the car has difficulty turning into corners.
Also known as "understeer." A handling condition characterized by a lack of grip in the front tires. As the driver steers through a turn, the front wheels want to continue straight ahead.
A term to describe a car's tendency to head toward the wall on a turn. Also called pushing or understeering.
A car is said to be tight if the front wheels lose traction before the rear wheels do. When the front tires are not gripping the track as well as the back tires, it causes the car to want to continue going straight when the driver is turning the steering wheel. A tight car is also said to be "under steering." A tight race car doesn't seem able to steer sharply enough through the turns.
When a car has more traction (or grip) in the rear than in the front. Also called "push" or "understeer."
Same as Push or Understeer. Typically describes a cornering condition where the front tires lose adhesion before the rear tires, resulting in a car that feels like it wants to go straight. Solutions include more front wing to press the tires harder to the ground, softening the front anti-roll bar setting or spring rates in order to provide more grip, or by making changes to reduce grip at the rear such as reducing the rear wing angle or stiffening the rear anti-roll bar setting or spring rates. Here is an easy way to remember whether a car is loose (oversteer) or tight (understeer), as originally described by Bobby Unser. "If the front end hits the wall, it's understeer. If the rear end hits the wall, it's oversteer."
A car is experiencing a tight condition when it will not turn in the center of the corner. This causes the car to drift up the racetrack.
When a car is difficult to turn and tends to head toward the wall on a turn, it is said to be tight. This is also called understeering or pushing. A car that is loose tends to be faster than a car that is tight.
A condition also known as â€œpush,â€ that occurs when the front tires of a car will not turn in a corner. The car tends to want to head for the outside wall. When this occurs, the driver must get out of the throttle until the front tires grip the race track again.
A car is tight if the front tires don't turn well through the turns. The reason for this handling problem is that the front tires lose traction before the rear tires. This makes the car very difficult to turn.
