What you said is absolutely true with the BMW Integral Active Steering. But I do not know if Volvo has brought the same concept to their buses.

Its hard to imagine a stable change in direction at high speeds with the rear wheels turning in the opposite direction to the steered wheels be it on a CV or a pascar. Only other option I can think of is that at higher speeds the rear axle does not steer at all.

Q - Which transport corporation ruins its buses by painting them 60's psychedelic style?

A - KeSRTC!!!

Damn, this is such an abomination!!! Worse that the old Hi-tech buses lime green paint scheme.

This thread is hereby closed.

We love trucks & buses! Just like the Indian Car Scene section, where every car gets its own thread, we will now create a new thread for each commercial vehicle. Discussing multiple vehicles on a single thread leads to a diluted discussion; important vehicles might get lost in the middle of a multi-page thread.

Please create a new thread for every Commercial Vehicle worth discussing with other enthusiasts.

Thanks!
