I don't entirely agree there... knowing how and why it bucks like that (you can get it to do the same thing in a manual) can help minimize if not prevent it from doing so.

I don't disagree about having to sort of learn the nuances of interacting with its computer though.... It's sort of a mix of both traditional manual technique in regards to accelerator modulation and learning the SMG computer's tendencys...

Again I have not had it buck like that... when I drove SMG cars. Maybe I've just been lucky.
