I'm not trying to argue with you, just stating that we don't know enough to dismiss what the report is saying.
I know my Trans Am is a pain in the ass to steer when i lose power steering, i could only imagine how difficult it would be to steer it around a corner at 120+ MPH.
again there would be less tire friction at those speeds and it wouldn't be as hard to turn as one would think IMO.
I think the bigger question is if the fluid caught fire and caused something to explode
