Acceleration Comments: Best run with traction control on. No wheelspin. Hates brake torque. Only gets slower.

Braking Comments: Typical Honda brake performance. Best run is 1st run. Degradation of distance and pedal feel after that.

Handling Comments:

Skidpad: Stubborn, howling understeer with VDC off. With VDC on, brakes can minimize understeer effectively. Slalom: Remarkable balance for what would appear to be a tail-heavy vehicle. Some oversteer is possible, but best runs were 'less-is-more." With ESP on, the system tidys up the line so well that it went quicker.
