Leave the line best at about 2,700 rpm with minimal wheelspin. Great shifter and engine sound. Easy to launch consistently, but not always quickly (5.1 to 60 easy, 4.9 not easy) barely makes quarter in 4th gear.
Great pedal feel, some steering wheel shake. Less consistent distance than I'd like.
Skid pad: Steady-state cornering produces moderate understeer but rear will easily step out with throttle drop/kick. Slalom: Immediate turn in and very sharp response-- like outgoing stang. Remarkably well behaved for an axle car. Very impressive handler.
