Now that I'm getting accustomed to the my R8 I've started to have a bit of FUN with it!

1st gear powerslides accelerating out of tight corners is simply awesome! Feels like a RWD as the R8 hangs it's ass out! :D

2nd gear drifts take a little more practice and provoking!! Make sure you practice these on the race track!! You need as much room for error as possible!

I honestly believe the R8 AWD is perfect! It's a RWD with AWD insurance! LOVE IT! :)

Totally agree, but I've only experienced it on an airfield so far.

Wouldn't fancy trying it with everything switched off on the public road!!!

When it goes, it goes too quick for me to keep in check!

Yes, it does go quick! You can feel the weight of the Mid-Engine snap out! But I love it! In fact, in the rain, I can make the rear end dance all over the place!! :)

Then again, my E46 M3 would snap oversteer very quickly so I'm used to it and in the rain would fish tail through 1-3rd gears!!
