Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsWe launched at 4,750 rpm. The shifter is awesome. There was solid clutch engagement.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsThe operation of the ABS was loud. The pedal feels good, especially conisdering it has rear drums.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsOn the skid pad, there was consistent understeer and it was slow reacting to throttle input. In the slalom it felt stable and provided good feedback. It allowed for fast runs for an inexpensive car. It was even fun to drive.
