Is this only useful in the linear range of the tire? It is a function of cornering stiffness which is the derivative of the lat force vs slip angle curve.. which is zero at the lat force peak. I have heard of Milliken suggesting that in some cases oversteer at high speed and not at low speed could be due to yaw damping making the car easier to control at low speeds and covering up a naturaly oversteering car. Seems like this only applies to the linear range though and would have little effect on limit or near limit behaviour no matter what the speed is. It also seems the variables that influence yaw damping also influence under-oversteer in most cases. I am trying to determine if yaw damping is useful in racing especially autocrossing since it has more influence at low speed?
