With your previous experience with the Mustang, I think you will quickly find out the trick to getting good times. Sounds like you are already doing very well. Of course the course layout will make a big difference. Being a light and nimble car with great braking (its strong suit) it does very well at complicated courses with tight turns. On a more open course with longer straights it still does well but in its class SS you have cars like various Porsche models, Vipers, and Corvettes that have tons of power. But getting it to the ground is an issue ;-) If there is a tight wet course they might as well just give you the trophy before you run. That is one area the stock P Zero AR or ARR tires have an advantage....they work pretty well in the wet. There was an autocross last year that was run in rain....a dead stock 4C (not my car as I was running timing gear) beat everyone else by a substantial margin. It ended up with the 2nd or 3 fastest time of day and there were some pretty serious experienced competitors as it was a Championship points event. The guy who did so well was just running for fun. I was impressed!
I do run in R mod to eliminate the nannies. I think after trying D mode, R mode for autocross works better. Since I am not in any real danger of loosing it and needing the nannies to save my bacon in auto crossing, the R mode should be faster but that may need further testing.
