I don't know where you test drive new cars, but around here the salesperson goes with you and you cannot take a car any where near it's limits, especially a brand new car that has not been broken in.. so it is very hard to determing how a car will handle on just a test drive..toddwcarpenter said:I have an excuse for not driving a Solstice yet (there are none available to drive). Nobody really has an excuse for not trying the MX-5, they are readily available. Go drive an MX-5, try to get it to spin, then report back. Like I said before, people are already racing MX-5's on the track, snap oversteer is not an issue for them.
Well they have had ride and drives all over the country, along with the GM road shows where they let people test out the new cars, I have seen many posts on here telling of these drives by others... If you really wanted to drive one you have had chances...
Do you really think that the ones racing on tracks are purely stock? Stock suspension setups, stock tires etc?
