Lever.... So to use it in a corner, you have to get your appropriate gear selected, and then very quickly swap hands on the wheel and get on the handbrake, a skill I have yet to master....

Or if the track does not require many gearchanges it would not be so bad. My favorite road is mostly third gear with a couple second gear turns.

Our autocross requires lots of 1-2 work with a few 2-3.... Autocross is tight turns, not big sweepers....

Although I also like Latigo (except for the rough bits) and Stunt/Piuma.

Fast Mulholland has some nice turns between the Rock Store and Las Virgines.

There are lots of nice roads out here.

Never had to drive in snow.
How the hell do you drive in snow that thick?

The Snake is not tight turns either. 3rd gear is downhill for less engine braking. Uphill is a lot of second gear, revving up to 6K or more in places.

Not sure if it was your photog friend who named it that. I still think it (the nickname) is totally ghey. Kind of an attempt to garner "Tail of the Dragon"-type fame.
