Introduction to the slip angle

The slip angle refers to the angle between the tire axis direction and the tire traveling direction when the vehicle is running. Today's tires generally use rubber as their material. This material is elastic. When the driver twists the steering wheel and changes the front wheel, the contact surface between the tire and the ground does not immediately follow other parts of the tire due to ground friction. Change the direction of motion, and there will be some distortion. When the tire is pointing, the tire can still get the friction from the ground, instead of completely losing the friction and slipping under the inertia. This is the slip. The importance of the corner.
