would this be considered power understeer?
I watched that old school handling video, very cool.
I couldn't make out both explanations for correction though.
Missed the first one. The second is, in severe circumstances, to dramatically lift off the throttle....?
What was the first suggestion?
I suppose there are a lot variables and remedies can vary....
tap brakes (assuming of course your understeer isn't caused by overbraking)...
or turning into wider path, i.e. turning into the skid (instead of turning steering wheel in opposite direction to counteract typical power oversteer)
This guy probably couldn't have corrected because he didn't have enough road to turn into the skid and/or lift off throttle.
