Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsAll runs performed in "drive" with no manual shifting.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsNo ABS noise. Plenty of pitch and dive at full ABS activation.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsHeavy VDIM activation, and no "off" switch direction was an issue in getting quick times. Directional control was difficult with VDIM activation on front brakes at this speed. Resulted in severe understeer.
