There was a slight advantage in acceleration in brake torquing the launch, but the car is still quite slow and the CVT makes it feel even slower. Since the car doesn't have a tachometer, it's hard to say how high the engine was revving, but it didn't seem tortured.
The first stop was the shortest, then typical progressive increases in distance as the rear drums faded. The pedal remained firm and the stops remained straight. Plenty of body dive, but no wiggle.
Skid pad: With ESC disengaged, the car understeered persistently, with tires howling, and even abrupt throttle inputs didn't change the car's path, partly because the CVT was trying to sort out the appropriate engine rpm the whole time. Steering effort varied in a linear way, but the overall action is springy and the overall impresson of low-grade electric-assist steering is strong. With ESC engaged, the system reacted by breathing the throttle and dabbing the brakes. Slalom: An awkward response to initial steering inputs as the body flops over. Stability control keeps the car from getting out of shape from the large amount of body control combined with quick direction changes. Steering has very little communication about what is happening to the front tires. Only by sheer driver fortitude and a little recklessness did the car achieve 64 mph.
