I've been driving for three years now, from SUVs,vans, and my Mazda of course, but this has probably been the fastest vehicle I've ever been in.

I'm taking it slow at the moment, and the fastest I've ever gotten it was about 40 mph due to the fact that I've only driven in the city, but the majority of my concern is due to the RWD and stories of people fish tailing/over steering. I'm still getting a feel for this car, but I feel that if I get on the highway going 60 or 70 and I do a highway curve, it'll oversteer and I'll lose control. Or if I switch lanes at that speed that I'll fishtail.

I know to take corners slow and not hammer down the pedal as I've seen many people in videos do. This is my first RWD and the majority of concern is as I mentioned the fish tailing/oversteering

If I could get some insight or tips, maybe relieve my anxiety, that would help tremendously. I've been reading a lot through this forum and these are some of the general questions that come to my mind. Otherwise any help is greatly appreciated.

Its a v6 your fine
