Very slow off the line, then once under way the steering tugs to the right and resists re-centering. Smooth but slow shifts -- gears seem spaced far apart.
Excellent pedal feel, good linearity but fade set in at 5th panic stop. Resists nose dive quite well.
Slalom: Crisp turn-in, good in transition and there's useful rotation available. Pushed too hard (with VSC off) it will oversteer. With VSC on, there's some trimming and only throws the anchor when it needs to. Skidpad: Good balance between under- and oversteer. Steering is communicative. Tires seem to give up before the chassis does. Chops throttle and applies brakes with VDC on.
