    Electronic steering cutout under extreme conditions.

    Anybody get kickback from the steering wheel when say, handling at maximum threshold while doing 170+km/h?

    Just curious what's going on haha. I am running heavier oversized tires if that matters.

    Smooth track, so it ain't potholes. Seemed to happen more when cresting hills though. Any thoughts?

    Cresting a hill at high speed while there's steering input... sure it wasn't the stability control kicking in? Seems like that's when it would happen.

    Why? My cruising speed on hwy is 130-140 but last tear when pandemic just started and everybody was driving crazy as there were almost no cars on hwy i accidentally accelerated to 160 without noticing. So 170-200 is doable.
