I did a few autocross laps in a CB Midget not long ago.  I got the feeling
that it was somewhat "twitchy", but after a little more driving I concluded
it was just a first impression derived from a faster steering ratio.  Once
I got the feel of turning the steering wheel less to affect the desired
response, I found that it handled pretty much like any other CB MG.
However, with a shorter wheel base and less mass it will change direction
quicker, so it's easy to overdo the steering input, especially if you're
used to driving a larger MG.
