In my area NASA hold autocrosses on a local oval speedway on which speeds of 70mph have been possible in a focus - of which one s2000 has already been totaled on during their circle drags.. along with a Jeep SRT8...

I stopped reading this thread at page 2 b/c I'm lazy, so this has possibly already been said: Auto crossing and Track racing is all about drivers. There is a guy here in a Saturn and he beats open wheel Lotus' and miatas. It's all in the driver. S2000s are light, RWD, high revving, and have beautiful gearboxes. Z4s are quick, but heavier, and poor visibility. If the best driver in the world drove each car, then we could determine the real outcomes, but it's all in the driver. You drive well. These guys don't. Simple as that.

either they weren't pushing it or they weren't good drivers. the s2000 can smoke the SVT on both straightways and curves even stock, modded that's another story. the Z4 well I've never seen one of those perform before but I assume it can handle and maybe accelerate better than the SVT.
