Inexperienced and cautious....S2000 $30,000 plus and Z4 3.0i is another $40,000 plus. I think they were being careful with their babies. Hell, I beat the crap out of my car.....but i am cautious in corners with our lift or brake oversteer we get. If its your daily, or your sunday driver.....have to be careful.

This thread will be locked down and dumped in the recycle bin if any more references to racing on the street are posted.

Well, so far I've only come up against a few S-2000s (stock class) when AutoCrossing.
As of this time, whether it be short track (parking lot) or long course (road course here in Helena) I haven't been bested by one yet.

I am of the opinion that the drivers were mainly trying to get a feel for their car, and weren't out to win any national championships.
That might explain why they never came to any more events.
I would like to go up against one with a competitive driver to get a better idea though.
In that case, I most likely would get trounced big time. LOL!

BTW, I edited the thread title to help alleviate any "street" responses.

I voted drivers ,but it's not that cut and dry. The s2000 and the SVT are close enough that the way the track lays out could give advantage one way or the other. The Z4 was a bad driver. He should have schooled you.

z4 2.5 isn't very fast at all.

S2000 is pure sex though.
