Oversteering Driving Behaviour

Oversteering was formerly a typical self-steering response of rear-wheel drive cars. The car shows a tendency to swing with the tail out to the curve outer edge at load changes, hard steering manoeuvres or sudden acceleration. Oversteering can be again compensated through a dosed countersteering, but this requires driving skills.
