From what I can see, your car is more than a little different that Rob's, so it is a bit of an exception.
I was just trying to get him to avoid making assumptions. Appearances can be VERY deceiving, especially at the track.
Dismissing a car because it cannot turn well on a skidpad autocross is very narrow-minded.
Every car has its forte- an F1 car might not do well on an autocross course- does that mean it's a bad car?
Playing Devil's advocate is fun- Rob makes it very easy....
Actually, I don't think that our e30 M3s do very well on Rolf's autocrosses at all. Generally our cars seem, to me anyway, to be suited to a faster more open circuit. I am always fighting the power steering pump/system during autocrosses as well as fumbling with 1st gear which is too short and 2nd which is too tall.
But it was a good weekend; a little cold but good.
