Performance & Race Driving Tip

race-car-steeringTurning the steering wheel is a terrible thing to do to a car. It slows it down – and who wants to do that?!

The closer you drive the limit, the more you control the direction of the car with the weight transfer, and the less you change direction with the steering wheel. It’s at this point when you realize just how much turning the front wheels slows the car down. It becomes a brake!
