Some basics have been presented inter alia in former blogposts on the crucial subject treasure chest on the occasion of the past year ends. Today, we face a „Notschlachtung“ (emergency slaughter).
The German word „Notschlachtung“ (emergency slaughter) is used allegorically in motor sport. To handle a specific critical situation, a „Notschlachtung“ is a must – as an immediate action.
This situation: your car begins to spin, you are more passenger than pilot; are you, really? As it is occuring, you have to hit the brake pedal as soon as possible – quick as a lightning and with all the power. There are quite good prospects if done correctly.
The result of the „Notschlachtung“, car without ABS (not unusual in motor sport): your car continues to slide in the very last direction the vehicle was driving before all the 4 wheels blocked. Speed diminishes, probably you are able to handle the car correctly at a lower speed, probably you have to wait until the vehicle stands still or the unavoidable crash is not too heavy due to the drastically reduced speed.
A car equipped with ABS: it is not possible to lock the wheels. In this case, the situation is hard to assess, quite unpredictable – because of the still turning wheels, which influence the vehicle’s movement, too. Genuinely realistic: diminishing speed, and looking forward to the same outcoming as described above.
In any case: for the real „Notschlachtung“ a car without ABS is required. Either way, this is not an easy subject, and you have split seconds for your decision and the implementation – both have to be completely accurate!
This ride’s ending is next ride starting. Again, fasten your seat belt firmly, start the engine – you are ready to go. Have a safe drive!
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
