other testers noted body roll due to higher cg when suddenly shifted through the slalom, which wasn't noticed on the skidpad due to the cg being pushed in only one direction.
reviews in other mags i read seem to be pretty consistent with the focus at .96 and show the genesis and mustang v6 consistently at .97.
seems alot of manufacturers are upping the game anymore.
