Let me start by saying the V is the most balanced car I've ever driven. It has nearly the same tire to road contact feel the Porsche turbo had and it's much better than my vette was. What I mean by that is the suspension soaks up the bump and keeps the tire on the ground better. My vette had a tendency to "skip" while the turbo was the most "planted" of the 3 cars. The only fault the V has is... wheel hop while sliding. I was in 2nd gear going 16 rolled onto the gas while turning right to start the slide... about 2 seconds later the inside tire started to hop like crazy (while I'm sideways). I just backed off and it stopped but so did that perfectly balanced slide . The roads were wet so maybe a slight inconsistency in grip could have been a factor in causing the wheel hop.
Have any of you experienced this? I'd like to test this on a dry road but I don't want to wear the tires down
I also got a nice thumbs up from a CTS driver this past weekend:coolgleam . I was on my way home waiting at a stop sign when a black CTS with a shinny / chrome front plate drove by.
