In autocross there are two main factors to focus on (no pun intended). The first is honing driving skills. Participate in as many driving schools as your sanctioning body (SCCA, NASA, etc.) provides and in as many events as you can. Ask successful drivers to ride with you and offer constructive criticism. Finally before spending bucks on allowable modifications (springs, shocks, light weight wheels, etc) get the best tires you can afford for the class you want to participate in. Tires make a huge difference in the learning curve.
