I think you're going to have a wakeup call when you realize what truly differentiates a TRACK car and a SHOW car once you hit the track for the first time. You really cannot have both, unless you drive your car like a pansy on the track, which absolutely defeats the true purpose.

Are you planning on running a fuel cell?

Dude, you have to take it for what it is. There are track cars & show cars. You're asking for advice and help. Nobody is bashing your car, at least I'm not, though I cannot speak for others. I don't care what you do with it. If you want to spend 50k on it, and throw it off a cliff, then aces for you(I'd like to film that!!).

You sound very inexperienced, as per your most recents posts regarding this matter.

I'm just trying to decode your needs versus wants.

my track interests are purly leisure, thats as far as they will go, but i want to be safe also, by having proper bushings, roll cage ect, i want to be able to feel safe rippin at the track, and still have an award winning car, i had a few months back , this is NOT a 100% track car, i want to build a car i can track as well as drive to work daily and enter a few shows, im finding my balance between acthetics and fucntion

So now we're getting somewhere!


Jay, start looking into:

SubFrame work
Fuel Cells
Polyurethane & Carbon Fibre components
Roll cages and bars
Sumps
Water injection
Cams, Valves, springs, retainers, thicker gaskets etc....
Steel Braided lines
R compound tires
Adjustable front and rear spoilers
Standalone engine management systems
Camber setups
Fuel Delivery
Oil Pan baffling
Proper wheel to hub matching
Lighter Calipers to reduce unsprung weight
2 or 3 piece Rotors
Brake Fluid and boiling points

Absolutely, and that will make all the difference in the world. You will find you don't need a lot of the excess items, if you can control your car properly.

I was simply supplying some valuable topics for reading.
