Oversteer - face possible fish tailing if you dont have good grip. Or you turn into the barriers more quickly if you are not careful.

Understeer - Where you want your car to go is not where your car will want to go. In other words, your tires can turn, your car may not or react very slowly. Same result will happen as with Oversteer if you are not careful: "board meeting."

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.

It's frightening to think that with modern medicine and all technique available to them, they can’t really help you; I should think in the old days you know you were better auf, because nowadays they’re all specialists, everyone’s becoming better and better at less and less! And eventually someone’s gonna to be superb, AT NOTHING!
