I just don't understand this trend of making bigger and bigger grills. Less grill means more aerodynamic and sporty looking. That thing looks like a mess. But the rest of the car is not bad... for a...

It's likely just those two slightly thicker bolts. Extremely minor upgrades which you can later buy for your current vehicle.

I've never been a fan of GM cars but performance-wise, it does appear that they are finally getting it right. I'd say all the Le Mans series racing feedback they've been getting has surely helped.

If he was understeering, getting on the brakes a bit is what you want to do to shift more weight up front. But he probably did brake too hard rather than a tap to transfer the weight.
