Why Doesn’t The Honda Civic Type R Have Torque Steer?

well-informed Honda’s new front-wheel-drive monster with the famed Type R badge. One of the reasons Honda got the 2017 Honda Civic Type R right;
Engineers completely reworked the car’s front suspension to
Eliminate torque steer. We hate torque steer, so that’s a very good thing.

Thanks to Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained,
We now know exactly what Honda has done to reduce the throttle’s influence on the steering angle. In comparison to most FWD cars,
Honda’s non-R Civic included, the new CTR has pushed the steering geometry further
Out into the wheel, reducing something called “Scrub Radius.”
Put another way, where most steering systems will rotate the tire on an arc,
The Type R has been engineered to pivot the tire around a center point.

We’re now smarter and more well informed for having watched this video.
Besides, Fenske executes one of the most cogent and easy to understand
Demonstrations of this car’s lack of torque steer, BURNOUTS!
