    What a great description of the car's driving demeanor! Now these are the details and writing that I look forward to, rather than the short, matter of fact, posts about cup holders or some other thing.

    I can now see why carefully executed suspension changes work wonders and dumb moves cause so many problems. I cringe when I see some of the whacky wheel/tire combos on the road. I'm so glad you found a good combo for your car.

    Low CoG really pays dividends when it comes to roll moment and roll stiffness.

    Nice analysis. This car seems seems to have plenty of headroom for upmarket, factory performance versions to be offered!

    I've driven a car with more tire than suspension before and it isn't fun. Really drives home the point that handling and grip are NOT the same thing. Good write-up.
