Nothing beats balancing a car's rear end with the throttle and some counter steer.
I've had to test both these two Renaults and like BMW's Mini they are very thuckable with the tail always proving playable. I'm not saying that it's any better than balancing a tail by the throttle but these two are only slightly less entertaining on the track and in my opinion are more entertaining than a heck of a lot of rwd cars on public roads and that includes the M3. But when you come back to reality they are only cheap tin tops from a French manufacturer and no matter how entertaining any car is I still prefer something with a bit more quality.
Now if Volkswagen made their Golf GTI as entertaining as either of these two Renaults than I doubt I would ever progress up the ladder beyond that point. Sad to say Volkswagen are too grown up to fully let it's hair down and produce such a machine.
