I'll never forget the time I overcooked it going into a hard right hander and my car wanted to keep going straight. If not for BMW's legendary brakes, the ZHP would have eaten a tree. No, understeer SUCKS when hanging it all out there and driving the car near the limits of adhesion.

I'd much rather have the tail kick out and correct it with some opposite lock than plow into a tree.

EDIT: Then again, I grew up driving fox body 5.0 mustangs so steering with the gas pedal is second nature.
