Under full throttle and full boost, torque steer makes itself known, with the steering becoming very light and the car wanting to travel a little off to the side, but it is definitely manageable and, we believe, not particularly dangerous.

Understeer in this environment ranges from mulish to absolute, the limited suspension travel provokes some unpleasant wallowing, and the actions of the traction control produce some strange sensations, although the engineers insist it's more effective than a conventional limited-slip diff, which they tried initially.
