Gyro Effect

An off road term used to describe the effects of manipulating the throttle, brake, and steering while in midair. Accelerating increases the inertia in the chassis and causes it to climb up. Similarly, tapping the brake will cause the car to dive forward. In the same way a gyroscope resists movement, steering in midair will twist the car one way or the other. By using the gyro effect, off road drivers can guide their cars to a smooth landing.
