I recently bought some sticky tires for the Mini and took it Autocrossing today. The tires are amazing and the Mini is soo chuck-able. Its very different than the Vette which requires me to be as smooth as possible to get a good run.
This thing is fast!:
Me and the #70 Mini were the only ones on stock suspension, everyone else was on coilovers.
As it is right now, the Mini is faster than the Vette at Autocrossing....
