    Took my 98 2.8 Z3 to its very first autocross, bone stock and on all season tires. I was pretty slow in comparison to others, but the car handled itself nicely. Came in 5th out of 8, I think I beat pretty much anyone that didn't have real tires.

    Isn't there a category split between road legal and racing tires?

    What happened to the 100? then you're 162, then 62...

    At that speed the numbers are either afraid to stay on the car or just can't hold on. Nice job driving Agent B. Frankie

    I can't tell you just how much I wanted to ask the same question but I was afraid of what the answer was going to be. OR Did the cones scrape off the #1? Poor guy, he'll never want to post another picture with the likes of us judging it.

    Great to see Zed's being USED.
    And I believe they are not as bad at it as a lot of people would think at first sight.
