    LOL It understeers for me too but I am a pretty clueless driver and have only tried it at valelunga club circuit. There are enough setup options that if I knew what I was doing I could probably make it drive a little more to my liking. It does have rear wheel steering that is controlled by the throttle and that is pretty cool and alot of fun.

    I found that turning off all the g-force effects helped me understand what the car was doing much more.

    At default, they really scramble the brain.

    Like quite a few cars, it has lift over steer. That can help you get around corners, additional steering supplied by the throttle :)

    Either that or a power slide .....

    Edit: whoops Michael mentioned it above already ...

    I'd love to see a video of lift off oversteer in this vehicle. It simply does not happen.

    Try the BMW M3 GT2 too, it's part of what makes it fun to drive. :)

    Completely fill the fuel tank and fiddle with the differential. It will swing around then. :whistling:
    Just make sure you brake early.:thumbsup:
