Visceral, I feel like a whip but that definitely got me, felt weird for a few days! Never pulled that kind of "Gs".

Can't say I got light headed, but I drove a 997.2 Turbo and that thing was a rocket. My 991 GT3 feels about on par with it accelleration wise, but that first go with the Turbo was eye opening.

Note to self: check with agent on liability coverage in event of passenger injured by launch control.

I love launch control, probably one of the best party tricks of the Turbo.
