Agreed, I see this a lot with people I know that autocross. They are quick on a small autocross track at low speeds, but useless when it comes to high speed stuff (the ones I know). This can be attributed to not having the balls or smoothness needed for a road course. With autocross there is a lot more sawing at the wheel while road course has very little movement of the wheel. They are essentially the exact opposite of each other.

Yep, some of the ones I know don't have the nerve needed for a road course. Cause truthfully there is a huge difference between the car control on an autox and that of a road course. Getting the tail out at 30-40 on an autox is childs play compared to getting the tail out at 100+ on a road course.
