An essential part of learning to drive is to understand vehicle dynamics. In a corner, weight simultaneously transfers from one side of the car to the other and also front to rear. The key is to understand this complex blend of movements to maximize the car's potential. Understeer is when the front of the car begins to slide, regardless of the input from the steering wheel. This is often called push or plow. Reducing speed into the corner or widening the turn will minimize the cost in lap times.
