There are mainly two types of drivers: those who approach the guide by necessity and those who do it by passion. Then there is a third hybrid category, that is, those that do it for passion and necessity. Surely there are some things that you should know or better that you learn during specific courses, such as those of safe driving or the most advanced sports driving.
Several years ago, when they taught me how to drive, You can change the way to understand the driving and, above all, to understand the use of the four basic controls – three if we talk about automatic transmissions – which are the steering, the clutch, the brake and the accelerator.
Water is something impalpable, that is the weight and mass of the vehicle. The moment I go to brake, the car is loaded at the front by unloading the rear. On the contrary, when I go to accelerate, the weight of the car moves backwards, thus unloading the front part and loading the rear. Understanding this concept is the key to trying to drive better and above all to drive safer and even cheaper as shown in DOT Supervisor Training Video.
Now the game lies in keeping the weight between front and rear as balanced as possible, thus keeping the car much more neutral and consequently having easier reactions to control. The three phases that we are going to see in order to apply this concept can be applied both in high-speed driving – for example on the motorway and DOT Supervisor Training Video and on very winding roads – for example in the mountains.
The first phase is the interpretation of the curve: when you are about to face a medium, long or short radius curve, Slow down using the brake or releasing the accelerator. In both cases I’m going to shift the weight from the rear to the front or from its center to the front, in the case in which it is proceeding at a constant speed. This leads to maximizing the grip that is the tightness of the front tires because the rubber is crushed to the ground and its footprint increases so you can get the maximum possible grip offered by the rubber.
The second phase of the guide is the distance. Set the curve so keeping the same steering angle, you can use the accelerator or brake the car to be able to balance the weight in the best way. In this way, you can have a car that is neutral at its center and therefore can maximize the grip of all four tires.
