I think that if you track a car at anything but realy timid speeds, you

need

a strong roll cage. Even if you do not screw up, the idiot going full tilt into turn one at Orem park can still kill you. A good FIA rated suit and Snell 2000 helmet would be smart too. For the car, get an oil pan baffle, and some guages. The S-14 engiens we have tend to oil starve in long, hard right handers, resulting in damaged #4 main bearings. The stock brake cooling is inadiquite. Either go with after market, or evo3 brake ducts, and upgraded pads. I like Performance Friction. There are a verity of upgrades to the suspension available. Take a look at Turner Motorsports Site for ideas.
