Yeah not many of these, but answers are going to vary widely based on car preference, and what specific hobby the people are into (drag racing, show, autox, trackdays, etc.) I added my own list for fun:
1. Best Tire Manufacturer: Hoosier (budget pick: Kumho)

2. Best Motor Oil: Royal Purple

3. Best Suspension Upgrade: KW

4. Best Wheel Manufacturer: Kodiak (budget pic: Rota)

5. Best Exhaust Manufacturer: Burns Stainless

6. Best Place to Buy Parts: Summit Racing (Focus specific: CFM)

7. Best Enthusiast Car: Ford Focus ;) (non focus pick: WRX)

8. Best Video Game: Gran Turismo 5

9. Best StreetFire Video: Gymkhana Three, Part Two

10. Showoff of the Year: Not sure what this means (probably car domain specific), but tb1999 has been doing some cool work on here

Posted via FF Mobile Id have to argue with most of those to be honest. Royal purple is a great oil, but not everyone agrees that it is worth the extra price. Both BFGoodrich and Mobil 1 offer great products at a very competative price.

American Racing wheels are better than BBS? In what way? Cheaper? They sure aren't better-looking IMO.

You can HAVE the camaro. I'll opt for the Mustang GT over that any day of the week. And I'll take a really sweet hot hatch over either of those...
