Pull push (not push pull; the pull comes first. Had to do hundreds of push ups during driver training because everyone kept saying it the wrong way around) sucks for daily driving, but I find it good when driving fast. Nice to know where your wheels are pointed in a slide.

That said, a mate did one of those supercar driving experience things in Vegas and used pull push steering, and the instructor told him to stop. He also guessed his profession straight away. Apparently we're the only people who use pull push steering. Not sure what that says about it...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hands off nether regions for the moment guys. I think it depend on what and how one drives. When hanging the tail out around a tight gravel road corner, the last thing one wants is to find ones arms crossed. The hands are in the eyes' peripheral vision so the brain can confuse left hand with right and one looses precise control. On the other hand, if driving a sporty little number with direct steeling around town, crossing arms makes a lot of sense. With a large saloon with a lot of lock, shuffling may be the only way. For example, I find that crossing the arms with the Jeep is often not enough so I don't even try anymore.

You're spot on there Bob. It depends on the how much steering wheel turn you have lock to lock. In your average rally car you have your sports steering wheel so with one crossover you're at full lock.

Our driving department teaches pull push steering (fire brigade) and insists on all our firies using it over the cross over method.

Wink Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi SD,

In a previous life I founded a high end audio manufacturing company (Plinius) and every year, for about 15 of them, we went to Vegas and exhibited at the CES.
Each morning my US agent would arrive to pick me up at my hotel and we would blast down Paradise he driving with a brekkie burger in the left hand, coffee in the right hand, phone jammed between right shoulder and ear and all steering was done with both knees. Fortunately it was auto otherwise I guess I would have been changing gear for him!

Now where is that method taught????

Pete
