Re: Best autocrossers? (JrodVW)
Of the choices that were up there, Miatas get the most results. So that's my pick. CRX's are also a fantastic auto-x car that gets results.
You can speculate a lot about stuff like Datsun 510's or Corolla AE-86's, but you don't see very many of them at the events these days, so it's hard to say. Miata's and CRX's get results.
As JrodVW said, Neon's also are damn good little auto-x cars. And of course the wonderful Integra Type-R should not go unmentioned, either. My last auto-x this year was behind the wheel of my friend's G-stock ITR, those cars are simply amazing. We dusted off so much expensive german hardware I couldn't beleive it. Hell, we both beat an A-Street-Prepared Porsche 968 on race rubber (we are on his bone stock RE010's - no, it was not raining)! I think we also both beat an E30 M3, an E36 M3 sedan, two guys driving an S4, and a 911. ITR's are freaking fast, and if I knew how to drive, it'd be even faster
Oh well, there's always a faster driver, and a guy in an E46 323 beat me (but not my friend), and we were both beaten by a Street Mod Scirroco (I think, I just assume that guy always beats us because he's good and his car is sweet)!
