    Yes that is my word. Other people have tried to claim it but I invented it in the 70s in high school and all my friends used it to describe how their cars handled etc.
    Now I am going to resurrect it to decscribe the P85D, because awesome traction at the start and and really gripping the road is Gription. Especially in insane mode! Feel free to use it.

    Man when you think back they were pretty lame. I drive my Dad's 70 Camaro, then got my own 1974 Ford Capri, then a 76 Mazda RX-4, a 72 Fiat X1/9 was next. A friend had a 73 Celica, another a 69 SSD 350 Nova and a guy who sold vacuum cleaners door to door part time saved up for a 71 Vette which we thought was the ultimate! Who could imagine what we're driving today.
