The wheelbase describes the distance between two axles of a vehicle. An example of this is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels of a car . The difference between the center distance and the total length is called the overhang.
A shorter wheelbase results in greater maneuverability of the vehicle and increases the so-called ramp angle , which can have a positive effect on off-road mobility. A longer wheelbase improves straight-line stability. However, the mass distribution of the vehicle under consideration and the caster also play a role here.
