Pretty good. Helps hold traction through corners with loose dirt.

Did 3rd autocross today. Site was an airport just north of Orlando. We used an old asphalt runway built in WWII and it was an "interesting" surface. We swept the heck out of it before we started and it was still like running on marbles. The photos of the course aren't blurry, that's as far as you could see in the trail that the cars were throwing up.
Couple of interesting cars there. Cosworth Vega with a 4.3L V6 swapped in. The '72 Celica was really quick but the gum ball race rubber he was running were the main reason.
He only had one run with penalty cones......door latch on the drivers door broke, it flew open in a turn and took out a wall of cones.

Man, I'm jelly. AutoX season is a long way away around here. It's why I've resorted to beating the hell out of my car on dirt.

Things will swap come June-August. It will be nice at your autocross sites and it will be 115F, 100% humidity at ours.

you'd probably have better luck in the classifieds, as most of us already own an E36

You won't hear me complaining. I gotta get a shoe soon.

There is, however, a Z3 sub-forum:

We don't mind having you guys around here, though.
