I really had a lot of fun on track days. They perform very well once they warm up, they maintain a very good grip even on a light slide. Good cornering. On light snow and ice they are terrible.

I kept looking a other cars to see if they were having the same problems I did, just to keep it strait on an unsalted, 1/2-inch snow layer.
