I agree, what people fail to realize is SKID PAD numbers are from driving in one direction as hard as possible until you spin out and thats where you get your "G" rating.
For an SUV it does a good job but what about when you start changing directs rapdily like when going through "twisties"... all of that extra weight flopping back and forth is going to greatly reduce not only your speed but the amount of "G's" you're going to be able to pull.
Seriously anyone else on here think that an SUV that weigh's 2 tons is going to keep up with a compact car that was built with the sole purpouse of road handling??
