Default GT86 vs 370Z vs Used Cayman S - CHRIS HARRIS




Interesting to see the way the 3 cars react to the right hander with the slight jump. The Toyobaru and the Cayman appear to be overdamped in yaw (it yaws clockwise then recovers without overshoot). Only the 370Z appears to yaw clockwise then overshoots counterclockwise, before settling. I know for a fact that I hate cars that feel underdamped on their bushings like that.

Apparently used Caymen's aren't so abundant or cheap in the US.

Well, at least AMERICUH is better than england (not counting motorsports) in basically every other way, I guess I'll stay.
