ZERO-OFFSET STEERING

Designed to minimize torque-steer on front-wheel drive cars during acceleration or braking with each wheel on a different surface, the zero-offset steering has a scrub radius of zero. In other words, the lateral forces that act upon the wheels during aforementioned situations are kept to a minimum and the vehicle's stability is improved.
