Kill Story: Smacked down a stock 2002 with my M3

Well, "smacked down" is probably a bit of an overstatement. But I did manage to jsut barely beat a well-driven 2002 at the most recent DC area autocross by less than half-a-second. In talking to the driver, the car is basically stock, with an updated head and new carb being the only engine mods.

My car: 240 hp, 3500 lbs.

His car: 110 hp, 1900 lbs.

Bigger and more expensive is not always better at the autocross (though, in this case, 25 years, 130 hp, and 1600 lbs. bought 3/10s of a second).

Edit: Rematch this weekend.

Your car should be much faster than his.

SLAP! You refuse to understand that on an autocross, HP doesn't matter. Period.
Sure, I don't, right :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

IT ISN'T about HP, the E36 is a far superior platform than the 2002. Given equal driving, the E36 should destroy a 2002. The 2002 runs in the lowest class at CCA auto-x, class C; our cars are class A and are faster, got it?

You are really naive if you think that a 2002 with stock suspension can touch even the fat pig that I am driving at auto-x....
