Easy to launch with traction control off. Wood the brake, rev to about 2,000 rpm and lift off the brake. Very little modulation required. Best run with transmission shifting itself. Manual mode makes it easy to shift too late. Feels and sounds great.
Awesome distance for a car this big and heavy. Pedal feel only OK, but no fade during our testing.
Skid pad: Light steering still offers a bit of feedback at the limit. Huge gap between the numbers when the stability control is "on" versus "off." Clearly this system isn't designed to offer any performance driving options when "on." Slalom: Lots of body roll even in "S" mode with checkered flag illuminated. Precise, direct steering seems a bit out of step with conservative (soft) chassis tuning.
