    Is this reviewer suggesting that the P85+ is faster in the figure-of-eight?

    That's not what I heard. I heard that he thought the P85+ felt sportier because you could make the rear hang out. He felt the P85D held well but you couldn't make the rear hang out. I didn't hear anything about which was faster around a track or on a figure 8.

    Do you want drama (butt out drifting) or fast (rear tucked right behind the fronts)?
    I'll take smooth is fast any day over the Tokyo Drift. I guess I was never meant for LA :)
