I don't know why they act like that at autocross. Maybe they do need some heat to work.. but most street tires have the most grip when cold. These aren't R compound tires!

As for E9x M3s at autocross... I was the only one there that day. The past year when I was autocrossing the car, there is usually only 1 other E9x M3 there. I run in STU and the M3 is hardly competitive there. The class is dominated with E36 M3s, STI and Evos. I've been autocrossing Evos for the past 6 years and various other cars for 14 years so it is humbling to jump into the M3 and be a lot slower. It's just too big a car and you can not put the power down easily.
