Our NASCAR friends have a nice simple description of the difference between Understeer and Oversteer: “Understeer (push) is when you hit the wall with the front end of the car. And Oversteer (loose) is when you hit it with the back end”.

Unfortunately, it’s a bit more complicated than that.

And in our new SAFEisFAST four-part series - “Understeer vs. Oversteer” - a group of top drivers and race engineers really explain the deal.

Episode 1 examines how it all works - along with which is faster. Interesting stuff if you’re interested in going faster.
