Traction in motorsport and sim racing is the same theoretical thing. Understanding it is one of the key factors in racing.
Traction to some in sim racing is just ” it grips, its good”. Whilst that to a degree is true, many key factors come into play to allow the vehicle to perform at its peak.
Many vehicles have terrible traction until all the stars align and its true meaning comes into effect. You see, take a Formula 1 car, at low speeds it is awful, the car is driving like it is on ice.
Turn it up to 11 where the car is in it’s prime and everything comes alive, rally cars are also a great example of this. They skate and glide over the surfaces.
Traction is everything, but how do you use it properly to great effect, how do you understand your vehicle to get the most out of it? Thankfully great people in the sim racing community are here to help.
In this video by Track Titan we see an in depth analysis of what traction is and how to maximise its effect for racing.
Traction is that margin that can make the difference
