You've got the best ones, EVO is absolutely the best magazine on the market, it was set up when Performance Car was bought by CAR, and the original Performance Car guys didn't like the way it was going, so they set up on themselves, hence the similar "look and feel"

as regards traction and grip, Traction is very much off the line stuff and grip is more about cornering speeds/stability.

What I find odd is that US magazines seeem to place a lot of weight on the amount of lateral G a car will handle on the test track, wheras in the UK this is never mentioned (or very occasionally). 2 cars pulling the same G round a smooth test circle will behave very differently given a real world surface.
