MONTH 2 By Cur­tis Moldrich

BLIP THE THROT­TLE, change down, pause be­fore brak­ing, then turn in and hope for the best. Squeez­ing all the speed out of the Lemony Swift is a sweet, re­fresh­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. I’d en­joy ex­plor­ing its lim­its more with a lower driv­ing po­si­tion. As it is, you sit a Yel­low Pages too high and it feels like you’re driv­ing a spritely ten­nis ball, rather than a juicy hot hatch.
