Meaning: When cornering, if your front tires start to lose traction before your rear tires do, your car will begin to experience understeer. That means the rear end of your car will still be gripping the road, while the front will stubbornly refuse to turn the way you're telling it to with the steering wheel. Don't panic. Instead, lift off the throttle slightly to regain some traction in your front tires and continue your turn.
