Transit Autocross Drive

I had the chance to go to FedEx Field today (home of Redskins) for a demo from Ford on the Transit. It was neat to see how personalized these will be for the US market. They also had several versions that we could drive through a course and the only rules where 5 mph in pits and seat belts. I'm by no means able to compare to real autocross as I've never had the privileged, but the Ecoboost was damn fun to push hard though the corners and I am happy to say there was really very little body roll compared to other vans of this size. I drove much more aggressively than most people every push their cars and it responded and controlled great. Traction control always scares me because I struggle to feel when it's getting loose but otherwise it was a fun day. I didn't realize they are unit body (other than chassis/cab). No other point to this post, just wanted to put in a good work on these workhorses.
