Wildly erratic power cut when shifted at redline is almost a deal breaker. It's completely unpredictable and seemingly unrelated to rev limit. Perhaps some combo of hard shifts at redline triggers it? Either way, it's bad.
Pedal is almost too soft, and effectiveness is not as good as expected for a brake system bearing the Brembo name. Luckily, distance is OK.
Slalom: Good roll control and enough feedback to comfortably sense limits. Ultimately, not as sharp as the Infiniti G37 tested the same day, but still plenty engaging. Steering is lighter than I'd like but offers enough weight and feedback to make prudent decisions at speed. Skid pad: Balance is good here, as throttle transitions nicely change the coupe's attitude.
