Understeer is one of the features of vehicle’s handling which makes it to turn less shaper than what the driver intends to. This is due to the front wheel sliding to outside when the car turns much before the rear wheel loses its traction. Understeer is caused due to various reasons like more weight in the front wheel when compared to the rear, more roll stiffness caused in the front than at the rear or it could also be due to large positive camber angles in the corners of the front that at the rear. When the vehicle needs to be provided with straight line stability, understeer comes quite handy especially at higher speeds. In fact, all the cars understeer when it is driven at low cornering speeds. Most of the front wheel drive cars strongly understeer under power. In order to avoid understeering, it is ideal to reduce the pressure on the front tyres, using of softer front tyres, using of anti roll bar and need to increase the front down force. Understeering could be identified from light steering, drifting of the car to the outside of the bend and the noise from the front wheel tyres. Understeering is always comfortable for the driver to have the car in because it loses the traction and it is also widely used by many car manufacturers.
