Default For the Car Guys

I found this little gem on line and being a car guy as well as a gun guy, I thought I'd post it here for your edification.

An excellent explanation of some automotive terms.......

"Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you."

Unless you are using power induced oversteer to drive the car around the corner. Minimum of 600 H.P. should make this move safe.
