Term Definition
Off-tracking

The different paths that the front and rear wheels take when cornering. The rear or trailer wheels will take a shorter path around the curve, corner or turn. Thus the driver has to compensate for this shortcoming by taking the curve, corner or turn wider.

Off-tracking

Off-tracking is when the rear tires follow a different, shorter path than the front tires. The longer the vehicle the more off-tracking for which a driver must compensate.
