Just for info on lateral g's....
I was just reading a article in Motor trend comparing a few cars. They tested them at a track and listed speeds and g's through several turns. Many of the lateral g'd observed were well over 1.0g. These cars normaly pull well under 0.90g's on the skidpad. To say that a car can pull 1.0g's means nothing. I'm sure any e30 M3 can pull 1.0g. If it can do 1.0g a 200 ft. skipad then thats something different. Many people can say that their car can pull 1.0g.
You really shouldn't be listening to this guy, he obviously doesnt know much about cars. And how did he test this anyway? Was his mom driving?
Just my opinion
