As a racing instructor, I can tell you we almost always can tell which students are autox-ers. We constantly have to tell them to slow their hands down and be smooth.
But more to the point of the thread, I am a road racer who JUST went autoXing for the first time. I went into it expecting to get schooled. I finished 3rd in a basically stock STI......in SM. The cars owner came in 2nd. He was also last years regional champ.
Granted James Paulson and Ryan Otis ('07 STU Nat. champ and runner up) were 1.5 sec faster in a stock class.
