How to overcome road irregularities using the side discharge
Late noticing on the road a deep hole or open manhole, you can save the front suspension from a strong blow, using the side discharge.

a Little physics
During the sharp or steep turn, despite the changing trajectory of the wheels, the car is in full compliance with the laws of inertia will strive to maintain rectilinear movement direction.
Because of the impact on the machine the centrifugal force is dynamic offloading in which most of the weight of the vehicle is transferred in the direction opposite to the direction of rotation. In view of this, the main part of the machine weight will put pressure on the wheel running on the outer side of the arc trajectory, and the inner wheel, Vice versa, are unloaded.
Spring inner wheel of the front suspension at this time is in the decompressed state, the absorber is discharged and able to operate at full speed, and the front stabilizer bar of the body, working of torsion bar will lift the front inner wheel.
As a result of the above-described processes of the front wheel of a car, walking on the inner side of the arc of rotation, will either be slightly pressed to the cloth of the roadway, or even a few millimeters will move up, which will give the option to skip underneath an open well or a deep pit.
techniques of side discharge
Seeing while driving his car ahead of a deep hole, to avoid which, and to stop in front of her — and not enough time and space, to avoid strong impact on the front suspension, you must do the only right in this situation, the manoeuvre — the lateral unloading.
Consider the order of actions for situations when you need to drive through the pit located in the path of movement of the left wheel. In the case of deep location of the obstacles on the right side, the following steps should be performed exactly the opposite.
So, Yama is on the left. At a distance of 1 – 2 meters from the obstacle (the higher the speed – the greater the distance) should make a quick dash by the steering wheel to the left. From this maneuver the car "sit on the right side of" relieving the left.
Delaying the wheel the wheel in the tilted position, it must be returned to its original position, restoring the initial direction of movement. It was at this point your machine will take over the pit before it falls in the left front, and in the case of a clear and accentuated execution of acceptance and the rear wheel.
Work the wheel needs to be fast: jerk the steering wheel to the left and immediately pull them right into the original position. In case of delay in steering wheel turned to the left position instead of the side discharge will skid the rear of the machine to the right with all the ensuing consequences.
Enhance the effect of lateral unloading, pre-swing car: turn steering wheel first right, then left, and then align its provisions. The result of the discharge will be more pronounced if, at the time of performance of reception to increase the supply of fuel (push the pedal).
Maneuver side discharge should be done only in conditions of good traction tires and the road surface, be careful performing this technique in heavy traffic. The described technique can be used for travel irregularities with a convex surface (mounds, rocks and other obstacles). Thus it is necessary to be very careful, because the unloaded wheel blow on too high a barrier fraught with rollover.
The development of the reception side discharge requires a systematic development of technology for its implementation. The main difficulty lies in the fact that in the case of on-road obstacle, the driver reflexively trying to drive around it and turn the wheel in the opposite direction from the pit side, and it should be turning towards the bumps.
Good luck to you! No nail, no wand!
