Speaking of trying big, high power cars on tight courses....
I tried autocrossing Miss Piggy. Once. Turns into a drift fest. Which really
isn't fast at all, and
only okay fun. Actually caused a sidewall crack in my Dunlop SP8000.
At least Miss P'll drift when my 200 was just simply a pig. Yes, the Saabaru
quicker on the autocross course, but Miss Piggy would likely eat it up on a
road course such
as WGI. From my past experience (long ago) at LRP, it'd take Miss Piggy
awhile, but it would
eventually catch and pass the Saabaru there, too. Of course it's not exactly
fair, my UrS has
suspension and brake work and an MRC Stage 2 chip, and my Saabaru (Aero, nee
SCCA Solo2 stock, if Idid the same mods to the Saabaru I don't think Miss
Piggy would have
