Okay, I've been driving our Golf for the past couple of days. The Golf has about 200hp and a well upgraded suspension and it's been nice and dry so I've been hitting off ramps and curves with spirit.
Today, I drove the 240, and took a fun-to-drive back road route. For some reason the roads got wet suddenly where I didn't notice and I went into a curve a little too hot.
I guess I'm lucky that no one was coming the other way, because I locked up and slid across the oncoming lane. Luckily, I had the wherewithall to back off of the brakes and she snapped around before I went off into the woods, but holy cow did that get my adrenalin running and slow me down a bit.
