When he says "for the track you might be satisfied with the predecessor" is he referring to the M2 F87 maybe? Because the M240xi F22 was MUCH worse, when he felt understeer with this one, with the old one on the same corner at the same speed he would probably have died.

I would assume as much. Most people, when talking about the G42, draw comparisons with the F87, which I find pretty unfair.

I believe he was referring to the F22 M240 Not X Drive specifically because it weighs a lot less.

Exactly.

Well in this case you should check your car/tires, something is definitely wrong, probably the alignment and/or tyre pressure, or maybe the tires were simply overheated.
The amount of grip on the new one and the increased chassis rigidity compared to the F22 are immense, it's impossible not to notice. The old one was quite poor in corners with its tiny wheels.
I still think he was referring to the M2 and not the F22, or perhaps not a stock F22. Or - more likely - he was simply driving a lot faster in the new one without realizing it, the G42 disguises speed very well (maybe too much), but if an F22 tries to keep up with a G42, after two corners and two braking sections it will end up against the wall.

Great video as always from Misha, we were out at the ring with him a few weeks back but unfortunately couldn't get out on track.

We plan to go back soon and visit the Apex team and hopefully we can get some hot laps in.

Good to see a g42 240i driven properly and shows ho capable the car is.

Got a few minor mods to complete just to sharpen it up a touch but loving the car so far.
