Learn to drive what you've got first. In autocross it's 10% car and 90% driver.

A guy here in my region came out a couple of times with his Miata and thought he was going to clean up. After all, he had been reading the Miata Forum, installed all the "best" stuff: adjustable coilover shocks, hollow swaybars, "racing" brake pads w/slotted and drilled rotors, the lightest wheels available w/the grippiest tires and a cold air intake.

So, what happend? He got his ass handed to him (and badly) by an old fart (60) and his daughter (18) driving their beat up 92 Miata with Ebay coilovers and used Koni shocks, used 15" wheels and second hand Falken Azenis tires.

He hasn't been back.
