That's why they have course walks - so you'll go into your runs with at least a general sense of where the course goes. And a good reason to draw a course map. Instructed runs, with an experienced...

My downloaded copy of the 2018 Camaro Owner's Manual indicates that automatics also have a +/- manual gate at the shift lever. Have you tried using that as well?

What if it's the stability control doing the intervening and it's making an assumption that the higher lateral g's and yaw rates possible with 888's imply an impending loss of control?
