Moose test Rubbish more like well practiced Rollover attempt

I went out yesterday on the dirt to try the stabilty control and no matter what if you wrench it into a slide at 60 plus kmh it defaults to understeer with a buzz and whir so in my opinion the swedes in the moose test ( read Scandinavian flick test ) have a driver who knows how to precisely load a vehicles trajectory to invoke instability. In a normal shit watch out moment i couldnt see it happening. Mind u im on steel and 18 inch wheels and hard packed dirt but even so I could feel what the vehicle was defaulting to. ie reducing the wayward forces. A well timed flick and uplift on feeling the weight transfer will always defeat this system. The biggest killer here in oz unfortunately is a tree on your lap, most likely cause ?? 110kmh is too slow in modern cars to keep people stimulated, combine this with cruise control well !!!!

I agree buddy.It was a set up from the start!
Shame on the Swedes.
And here I thought Swedes were all nice and sweet.
Go figure.
Cheers
