Great first race car and you'll learn so much about momentum in an E30. Be sensitive of how each little input affects the car. Unwind the steering a little and watch the car make the corner anyways. Use less brake for the upcoming turn and voila', you make the corner. Obviously, you have to work up to it but it'll come. Less is more except for the right foot in an E30.
Driving a stock power E30 is like driving a Miata. Just floor it and turn the wheel
