Recalls to me this true historical incident:
In the 1930's Germany's rear-engine Auto Union (now Audi) grand prix race cars possessed phenomenal performance. However, the driving characteristics of the rear-engine machines were such that race drivers, experienced with conventional (front engine) machines, typically CRASHED these vehicles.
Thus the Germans recruited motorcycle racers, who had never driven ANY automobiles, and trained them on the Auto Union race cars.
The result: Consecutive World Grand Prix Championships to Auto Union. A few of these actual championship cars are in museums around the world today.
I think the excellent video illustrates the difficulty of accommodating "counter-intuitive" behavior into one's life; YMMV!
Thanks for sharing, Normk!
