I test drove one last weekend (ST2 package). I didn't push it to redline, only about 5500 RPM in 1st/2nd and I was amazed how little torque steer there was. I'd imagine it might come into play a little more in "sport mode" (ESC off), but it really does feel nice.

I have no idea if this means wheel alignments would be needed less though.
