Shifts before redline are annoying. Won't hold gears to redline in "Shiftronic" mode either. Engine is smooth and quiet.
Excellent pedal feel and response for the first three stops. Then significant fade takes over. Benefit of doubt says this is "green fade." Anomaly?
Stability control cannot be disabled. Electronically limited. Still, even with the ECU defining the limits, this is a good number. Steering could stand a little more feel, but overall this is a well-mannered machine. Good damping offers solid control through mid-corner bumps. Limits need more definition.
