Brakes! thats really all you need. then learn to drive your car!

The common misconception is that you need to mod your car like crazy, but in all actually you really don't. When i first started i was on an OEM suspension and the stock D17 block. NO mods. I just learned the limits of my car and pushed it to them when i raced. But if you want to Auto-x, the part that gets the most wear on um are the breaks entering and exiting turns. So upgrading them do a nice set of Hawks and Brembo blanks is a good idea! Suspension is key, but you can just change your camber anges a little bit on the stock side for a more aggressive setting and you would be okay. But a set of Blues and nice set of springs wouldnt hurt either. other than that... Just drive the damb thing!

this is all i have on my car...

gc coilover sleeves, progress rear sway bar + corsport endlinks, 00 si wheels with falken azenus rt-615

i'm switching to progress competition coilovers in the spring. i think these are the only mods you really need... and of course brakes and a DOT helmet.

Don't blame your poor judgement on the 'snow', if you go into an accident while it was snowing/raining/hailing/anythinging, you were most likely driving to fast for the conditions, it's that simple.

A good pair of snow tires make all the difference.
