That's a great statement, and explains a lot.
I still drive like there's an egg under the gas pedal, and I don't want to break it (the egg, not the habit).
I found myself feathering the throttle in 2nd gear the same as I would have in 1st.
But, you're exactly right...you can mash the gas coming out of a turn in 2nd with some confidence.

Ahhhh! I wish the season would start.
