CLUTCH ENVIRONMENT

Is it possible to “on the fingers” explain how to drive, using the full 100% potential of tire adhesion to the road surface? Can!

To do this, we represent the forces acting on the car in turn with the help of the so-called “traction circle”, that is, the graphic circle of the clutch. To do this, draw a cross and circle it equally distant from the center. In fact, this is a graph of accelerations G in each phase of the turn: braking, moving along an arc and accelerating. Suppose that in all three phases of the tire has the same coefficient of friction, allowing you to develop lateral acceleration in 1.1G. If you exceed it, the tire will begin to slide, and this, as you know, slows down the car. In our graph, these are the points of intersection of the straight lines of the cross and the circle. The upper part of the vertical line is braking, the lower is acceleration. Continue reading
