German term or phrase: breit/schmal (oversteering/understeering phases, sports car)
breit/schmal

Do the words "breit" and "schmal" here refer to the length of the phase -- or to the transverse behavior of the vehicle?

General context: performance of sports car
Specific context:
>>Denn wer im öffentlichen Straßenverkehr probieren will, dass nach einer breiten unterstellenden [sic] Phase in der Kurve noch eine etwas schmalere übersteuernde (Phase – R.B.) das Heck nach außen schwenken lässt, der muss sich über mindestens zweierlei klar sein: So ein Auto kostet xxx000 Mark, und es hat schon jetzt eine ziemlich lange Lieferzeit.
