    @87gtVIC: Haha! You know it, can't think of a better period correct song for controlled oversteer. Am hoping for some rain one of these nights so I can do a proper drifting/donuts compilation.

    Got distracted and did not get to dropping headliner for yanking trim and vinyl top remnants. Whatever, such is the price of automotive ecstacy. Just came back from 244 miles of mostly rip roaring hard driving and hard cornering. Am able to take turns 3+ miles per hour faster with the summer tires versus the all seasons. Ebyt turns in sharper, holds on longer, and breaks away smoother. Tried doing some donuts/long drifts after the tires were warm and she just wouldn't let go. The grip was unbelievable. Borderline bullshit levels of adhesion at times.... she felt like a zero turn lawnmower, right up until the rears finally began to break loose. And even then I had to be practically standing on the gas. Was slow, predictable, very easily corrected. The amount of good feelings this car generates is absurd. Lateral Gs have to be close to, if not more than, 1 lateral G on a skidpad.

    And to think there's more on the table even beyond that. With the aforementioned plans for handling upgrades & weight savings next year, I think we'll gain another 2-3 miles per hour in turns.
