Auto Xing

Ive been autoXing for the past 6 mounths, i really find the BMW's compete well, I go about 50/50 with them.. I find I can usualy blow out the newer ones, but sometimes those old boxy ones give me trouble.
Ohh and by the way my set up is a 2004 Z24, with Eibach springs, and KYB gr2 shocks. I have a ractive upper strut bar, and a custom rear upper.. It is the perfect handling machine

REmember, especially with auto-x's its all about the driver, car is just there to slightly help you, i've seen rusted up cars with half the power of mine, dominate all the classes and mind you there was porsches and subarus, etc.!

Why did you take a Z24 to Germany?

Does anyone else find anything wrong with this statement?

I've driven Z24's and they handle like crap. I took a stock one around a corner in a residential zone at 50km/h and I felt the most chassis flex I've ever felt in any car. It twisted and flexed and went on 3 wheels while cornering at 50km/h. What a POS!

Sorry I don't want to diss your ride. If you beat those BMW's, it was probably because you were a really good driver or the other drivers sucked. I think since you live in Germany, you should save your money and buy a German car. For that price you could easily find a 318 which is just as fast, a better more reliable car, better hanlding and it's a BMW!

How much does a Z24 in Germany go for anyways!?
