When you drive a real wheel drive too fast around a corner, the two inner wheels lose some down-force due to mass transfer. If you oversteer, does the rear inner wheel lose traction first? And then trigger the oversteer?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If so, are there any equations to determine how the weight is distributed knowing the total mass of the car, the distance between wheels, the height of the CG, etc...?

Thank you in advance for any help!
