Did that OVERSTEER into that first turn?

Man, and wouldn't it be cool if those THUNDER sounds came from the car?

Excellent body control! It did look like it had a bit of push in some corners. The suspension seemed to cope with the pavement quite well however. I just hope the car's weight is kept uder control, i.e. ~3000lbs but no more than 3400.

Is it just me or does the front end look a lot like this MG ZR? I realize that it is all taped up, but it looks like they are dipping into their days at Rover/MG.

EDIT: pic link deleted until I can find another good one that won't quit WORKING!

Wow I must say I'm impressed.

I can't say that I'm overly enthusiastic about the rear air suspension. It looked pretty good in the video, but how will this affect the weekend racers who like to upgrade their shocks?
