What are the differences in the different steering modes in a new GT? It's not very obvious to me!

Drive straight while zig zagging like a slalom and swap modes. It's quite noticeable.

You can't tell a difference between them? It's night and day between the 3 settings to me.

I'll have to try them where I can exaggerate turning like in slaloms. Not that obvious to me!

Good example! I don't exaggerate steering much as I'm a straight line accelerator... if that's possible!

Take it north on Apple Valley road until it dead ends. Then come back in another mode and you'll see.
