Look at the apex.  Brake.  Turn in.  Gas.  Apex.  Look at the exit.
Countersteer.  Whee.  Uh, don't try that in traffic...

After Saturday I can report that the Hakka RSi's are very predictable
and break away progressively.  Good accelleration and braking grip (ABS
engages, but decelleration is still brisk).  Somewhat less lateral grip.
  Haven't had a chance to try them in more than 1" of snow though.
