I barely notice it anymore, love the engine.

CJ Iím wanting to try my 570gt on the track but I feel like itís so under tired for the track? How is understeer on a track?
CJ will certainly have more to add and a well experienced opinion, but I found the 570 to do very well on the track great steering feel with much less understeer than I expected, I thought it was very neutral very well sorted machine, but unstable under braking as a lot of mid engined cars can be. I felt the lag was pretty signif though, on the track. Really had to get the wheel straight to get the power down. I still contemplate the 720S as I love the idea of Mclaren and think the 720S is the best looking of the bunch with many improvements, but that's just me. My real concern is just reliability with heavy track abuse. It's really hard to beat Porsche in this regard but Lambo and Audi seem to be approaching them. I wonder if Mclarens new cars are holding up well, if so and the shenanigans continue Mac may be the future for me, as always CJs input is always good.

I really don't feel the 570S understeered anymore than a 1.1 GT3 does (or doesn't)

On the 570 you should drive in track/track mode along with esc dyn mode. Will transform the car coming out of corners. If not in esc dyn mode, the car seems to reduce boost until you're pointed straight. Maybe that's what people keep referring to as "lag" while on the track.

The lag is from TCS/ ESC and each mode has a different throttle map.

The car does not understeer- if anything it will power on oversteer due to small rear tires. Which is fun. Reference my earlier post about big stones. It's a drift monster with TCS off.


With Trofeo tires you will gain a lot under brakes from the stock tire.

I heard they solved the scoop issue. Is it true that theyíre planning to use the doors as air brakes on the Senna LT.....?

This is why most dealers wonít allow unaccompanied test drives...
