I would beg to differ - my experience is different. If you're truly at the limit of mechanical grip (at peak slip angle) any change in throttle will indeed upset the car. The shifts for me are quick but just the slightly 1/10s drop in power will indeed upset your car if you're at the limit. In my experience if I'm not at the edge of the limit, it'll do fine, but if I'm at the cornering limit the shift will cause me to have to counter steer to correct additional yaw. So sometimes I'll anticipate it and relax the wheel just a tiny bit before I shift and then add steering right back after the shift - it all happens in less than 1/2s. is offline
