The 1M's twitchiness is more likely attributable to its short wheel base and high levels of grip. Smaller (shorter) RWD platforms tend to be snappier at the limit. With as much underrated power as the 1M is making (dynoed 330+ rwhp and 360+ rwtq), there's no doubt that you'd have to understand how to drive in order to have fun. I think I'd appreciate it that much more, although it's worth mentioning that I'm a fan of ridiculous tail-out antics over outright laptimes.

Sig pic unrelated. I like to go sideways and stuff.
