How to Correct Understeer During Cornering

1.

When you feel the car is beginning to understeer, gently lift off the gas pedal and straighten the front wheels.

2.

The front tires will regain traction by reducing the speed of the car and the amount the steering wheel is turned.

3.

When you feel the front wheels regain traction, begin turning into the corner again.

4.

Complete the turn.

Tips and Warnings

  • You can apply the brakes after you have lifted off the gas pedal and straightened the wheel to make the front tires grip more. However, you need to be careful not to apply too much brakes because you do not want to lock up the front wheels.
  • Turning the steering wheel more while experiencing understeer will make the situation worse.
