where the tire meets the road is called..
the contact patch is the size of your

two (3 weeks tops)
major cause of tire blowing
where does the under inflated tire wear
on the sides

environment will allow
sight lines include activity in your ______ vision
The Speed Issue Is Simple:
You should always be able to stop within your line of sight
what the driver feels has

as the frequency or pitch increases, your_____ decreases
Speed x 1.5=
Feet Per second
long breaking helps maintaining
Factors to consider:

-condition of road surface
you can only enter a corner at a speed which you
know you can compete the turn.
reduce speed in a
Rotational= Extended Release=
the wheel must be _____ in order to achieve platform stability
your ____ begins as you straighten the wheel
turning too soon; reduced sight line, not a good line to use
early entry (Early apex)
gives you the best driving line in a corner
late entry (late apex)
Understeer/ Push front wheel skid
:how to correct:
1)Ease off the throttle
2)Brake off the throttle
3)straighten the wheel a little
4)control the car. you may go off the road

3)if the car skids left turn left
4)this is your correction
oversteer when is the skid the worst
