No problem. Overall, you can expect much more slide and late turn in bite. You will need to slightly overslow for corner entry and then use the power of the car to rotate the rear, thus steering the car with throttle rather than the wheel. Entry speed will be the most critical. Overall lateral grip is not that bad compared to equivalent tires. Just getting to that point is a bit harder to accomplish. The fastest times will be generated with a slight/slow drift through all parts of the course. And it goes without saying that if you are experiencing push or understeer, you are going too fast and need to slow down.
