It does, but the way we were PAX'ed last year I had a much better chance at competing with you, this year, not so much ... and after my engine swap I'm not even going to look at the results lol.

I know.... what's even worse is that I don't have a 330... I have a 325
It should really be in a lower class. Hard to believe 187hp car is in the same class with 187hp as a 335is with 332hp.
Oh well, that's how it goes though. Maybe I should get a BRZ?

You should know that autox has almost nothing to do with power untill your well into the mod classes,overall weight,suspension design and probably the most important consideration is wheelbase(also front and rear overhangs).The mini is short with nearly no overhangs,the 335is not so much.

Oh yea, I know. I would much rather lose weight off my car than gain power. But it would be nice to be able to power oversteer to get around some tight corners (an LSD would be nice too!). Best I can do is reduce rear tire pressure to loosen it up, but then it gets really loose on faster corners/slaloms.

Haha,yeah the inherent problem with really forward biased weight-great in the snow however.
