Introduction to brake skid

If the front wheel first locks and drags during the braking process, side slip may occur. This side slip caused by braking is called brake side slip. The brake side slip of the front and rear wheels has different characteristics and effects. If the front wheel first locks and drags during the braking process, the vehicle will basically slow down and stop, and the car is in a stable driving state. If the front wheel is locked while turning, the car will lose its steering ability, and the front wheel will have a side slip that is proportional to its corner. Front wheel brake skidding is only possible when the car is turning. If the rear wheel is locked and towed before the car is braked, if the rear wheel is subjected to a slight lateral force (such as the curvature of the road surface to make the side high and low), the rear wheel will slip. The car is in an unstable state of driving.
