    BowenCT has the best posts on these topics.

    Looks like slalom speed isn't faring so well against lap times, eh?

    It shouldn't. Lap times are easily a better indicator of performance. No question. That would be my pick.

    But even lap times are gonna have qualifications. One car may dominate on a particular course and get handed it's ass to on another. An autocross lap is gonna be very different than a road course lap. Lap times are still only a part of the equation, if you will. But, certainly, the best indicator or benchmark of em all.

    What does anything matter? Lap times are the ultimate gauge...

    I agree with you- I'm not the 1 vote for slalom.
