Comments of the position of the bus during the lane change
Handling became very unstabel during the 30 mph runs. The test driver and test technician exercised their descretion and terminated further testing. Durability drivers reported excessive bump-steer and loose (excessive play) steering.

Comments of the tire/ground patch
Tire/ground contact was maintained through all portions of testing.
