The S30 gives you great feedback through the steering and is very 'catchable' . On a track the car can be 'coaxed' around corners by use of the throttle and steering. However my over-riding comment is that 'sensible' tyres make all this happen. I only used 195 on my trackday car and it was a dream. The other thing is the type of tyre - I used 'trackday' tyres and they are very forgiving and break away gradually (I assumed the opposite). Having said all this I've just watched your 'ice driving' and that is VERY impressive.
