i agree with carrera on that one. i live on curvey roads, so luckly i grew up and kinda formed a natural ability to autocross.

the FIRST time i ever ran in autocross was at jetfest, i did a 63 second run as my best and that was with the 2 second addon for hitting a cone in the slolom (sp?) it was my 4th run and the only time i hit a cone. if i didn't hit the cone i would have had a 61 second run.

that was all in a stock zx3 with fuzion Zri tires. not bad when you think abotu the more professional autox drivers in thier prepaired cars were coming in at around 56 seconds!

not to mention i never missed a gate, all the prepaired guys were missing them left and right..

now for me it's just a matter of me having the time to attend a race :|
