Yep. It turns in GREAT! You just have to remember that you can't toss it 
hard or you're going to pay at the other end.

We do see speeds in the 75 MPH range in our region and the car isn't darty 
at all at them. BUT - it's autocross == transistion city.

For that long stretch, the car just went where I pointed it. I do see that 
I am making lots of really, really small corrections on the long section, 
but that's more road defects than anything. I also had a fairly strong 
grip on the wheel.

Ya - I've been driving that setup for a while - like 10 years. I'm sort of 
used to it.
