I am very, very impressed, it's amazing how the car hides it's weight. It is so balanced in the turns. As soon as the DCT downshifting problem is fixed the car will be perfect for the track.

thanks,

Yes, I'm driving with the stock pads, with no fading at all. As a reference, my front stretch speeds are at or close to 140 and I'm having to slow to about 70 for the first corner. There are 5 other braking zones on the 2.1 mile track. I have hours of video, which I will post sometime next week. One more day of driving tomorrow. Which means more video tomorrow.

I'm not into the ABS when it rejects my downshift command. This better be fixed soon. The September software update better fix this or I'll be very dissapointed. Larry Koch, are you reading this? This is unacceptable for a performace car.
