Absolutely lovely and stunning car.
I like this main thread!
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I do like to hear also what springs/shock combi you've mounted.
