When you crank the tiller too fast and the nose wheels get to about the 75 degree mark or more the aircraft tends not to turn but go straight ahead. Especially if you bring in too much thrust too early in the turn? Watched a L-1011 taxi in quite fast when the captain cranked the tiller hard right and the bloody aircraft continued straight ahead for about 30’ scrubbing the nose wheels all the way and on dry pavement. Wet would be like a skating rink!

I agree. I encountered that when in a rush to get a lightly loaded MD80 into position on a snowy runway. In desperation, I reverted back to my younger days of flying a Grumman American Tiger around. The Tiger has a free-castering nosewheel, requiring differential braking to steer. Differential braking saved my bacon that night in the Mad Dog.
