English term or phrase: body roll/understeer
With minimal body roll and surprisingly little under-steer, the Sport KA is ready to set the pace!

Znam da sam understeer/understeering vec postavio kao pitanje i tada je neko rekao zanosenje. Medjutim, meni se cini da je body roll upravo zanosenje, tim pre sto se pojavljuje izraz oversteered kao suprotnost od understeered, pa rekoh da ponovo pitam...

1. rotary motion of an object around its own axis; "wheels in axial rotation"
(synonym) axial rotation, axial motion).

Dictionary of Automotive Terms

• Understeer

The tendency for a vehicle, when negotiating a corner, to turn less sharply than the driver intends. The front end wants to run wide in a turn. To correct this problem, the suspension needs to be stiffer in the front or softer in the rear. A front-engine vehicle has a natural tendency to plow straight ahead on turns (i.e., understeer) unless its suspension is adjusted to counteract it.
