Although the newer ones are better, S2000s are tail happy; you have to be a very good driver to drive them fast. It's a lot easier to drive a Miata near its limits.
When I was at Buttonwillow a couple of weeks ago, there were 7 or 8 S2000s in HPDE 1 & 2 and I think all spun, many of them multiple times. Granted, these weren't experienced drivers but you can do a lot of damage on the way to becoming experienced.
It's all in the setup.
