This would have to be the best explanation of vehicle dynamics that I have heard off.

"Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car".
and
"Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you."

LOL....:D

there are a few members on here with stuff like that as their signatures. . . .

under-steer is when you hit the tree between the headlights. . . over-steer is when you hit the tree between the taillights, power is how fast you hit said tree, and torque is how far the tree comes with you after you hit it.
