What is the most correct posture for steering the wheel?
Sometimes we hear people with poor lap speeds complaining that their cars are not as good as others, so they miss the opportunity. But in fact, many problems are caused by the driver himself. Even from the day when he learned to drive on the road, the slow laps did not remember the words of the driving school teacher.
Often, the neglect of the most basic details and the formation of bad habits are the real reasons for the driver's slowness, and the incorrect holding of the steering wheel is one of the reasons for the driver's slowness.
Then how should we hold the steering wheel? First of all, when we hold the steering wheel, both hands must hold the steering wheel tightly, but also relax and not tighten. Your hands should be placed at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock.
If you want to feel comfortable, bend your thumb slightly to buckle the steering wheel. The thumb should rest naturally on the steering wheel and keep it in the same position so that you can know how much you have turned and where it is in the middle. position.
When the vehicle slips out of control and you don't know where to return to the neutral position, you will know how important this grip is.
With both hands at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock, you can almost turn most corners without changing your hands. And this allows the driver to steer smoothly and more easily.
Maybe in some production cars, you can’t turn through sharp turns in this posture. In this situation, you should slightly change the position of holding the steering wheel before entering the turn (such as when making a right turn, you can Hold the 7 o'clock and 1 o'clock directions), so that you don't have to change hands, you can complete the steering action in one go.
When you make directions, you must work together with your hands. While one hand is pulling down, the other hand is gently pushing upward. Always keep your hands on the steering wheel (except for shifting, but even so, you should put your hands back on the steering wheel between shifts).
Use the wrist instead of the arm to adjust the direction slightly. All steering movements should be smooth and gradual, and you must not sway the direction in a bend. Give the steering wheel the required turning angle so that the vehicle turns in a gentle, silky curve.
When driving at a relatively high speed (above 90 kilometers), the steering wheel must not be moved randomly. A slight turn of the steering wheel will cause the car to run everywhere, which is prone to danger. The steering wheel can only move slightly. Don't relax your hands, don't be too tight.
Everyone who drives knows that every time the front tires are at a certain angle to the road, they slow down the speed of the vehicle.
But what does this mean? And how can you turn without turning the steering wheel? So, if you think about it further, we know that we should plan your curve before the turn and make as little as possible In the direction of rotation, try to straighten the exit line.
In a corner, if you feel the tire dragging or making a harsh scream, you can try to go back a little bit (out of the corner as straight as possible) at this time.
When the steering wheel is turned to the left, many people like to use the right hand to dig out the steering wheel. They feel that it saves energy. In fact, it is very dangerous. Once an emergency occurs, the hand inside the steering wheel is easily stuck or even broken. The arm is also easily injured.
When turning the steering wheel, do not turn the direction back and forth with one hand and place the other hand on the gear position. This is a very bad habit, which will not only increase the risk of driving, but also damage the gearbox. Therefore, always hold the steering wheel with both hands to turn the direction.
I hope you don’t just pay attention to the cool skills while ignoring the most basic skills when playing cars.
