There aren't any of those ruling the Trillium BMW autocross so why don't you come out and show us what can be done instead of spending Sundays waxing your wheels and w@nking over pics of Evo-3 M3's?

That silver Mini Does have just about everything that you could change uprated! Plus before the owner started tuning it for autocrossing it weighed 2550lbs. Now it's down to like 22XXish. 250+ hp equal amount of torque, 275 front A comp tires, adjustable coil overs, uprated brakes and so on..... Miatas and CRX's do not own autocrosses. I've never had a stock Miata beat me in my stock e30. Mini's rule autocrosses period. I've never gone nose to nose with a CRX but no torque=no go out of slow turns. Unless it's modded but then we're not comparing apples to apples.

Also the Mini Driver is a very accomplished driver as he's gone through the Trillium Driver education program start to finish.

In response to the 1M, that's going to be another fail of a car right out of the blocks. Too heavy by a land slide. The way they've been fixing that recently is by adding ridiculous amounts of hp. That helps stop light races and 1/4 mile times but does nothing to help handling, feel, and braking. BMW trade marks. With the amount of weight a 1 series has, it does not have a chance at becoming an autocross champ. These car manufacturers need to understand that the way to appeal to an enthusiast driver is to first start with a light weight chassis, then add a whole lot of sidewinder power, and leave out the GPS, nav, million watt stereo with heavy amps and speakers, leave out the 24 air bags, and ABS, DTC, SBC, and all of those crappy drivers aids, remove the power sunroof and seats. Back to basics a la e30/e36 days! I've said it before and I'll say it again, if BMW were to build a brand new e30 325i, I'd be first in line to pay fair market value for it!!!

Basically BMW needs a "CSL or LTW" for every Series lol.

Thanks Kevin.
At that time I still hadn't figured out the course as it was my second run. I went faster on the ones after, I'm hoping there is video of one of those.

I couldn't even finish your videos which looked great because of the horrible music selected.

He should have used some Frank Zappa for mine. Rod, can you add the sountrack from Dinah-Moe Humm to my video?

@ M5 lover - You're hilarious. I was experimenting for my first time ever editing video and picked whatever came to me first in my library. You're lucky I uploaded anything at all, much less 3 videos each over 100mb that take forever in you tube. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. (look it up)

@ Mark - next time I'll take requests!
