steve35svt As said above , learn the limits of the car first, no mods. For tire choice , I'd say a decent summer performance tire. No r-comps or sticky extreme performance tires for learning. They loose traction with less warning and when they do make noise control is already gone.

GodLovesUgly do not mod your car first. learn the limits then mod. you should be modding to "fine tune" your car. just because you add a turbo and coilovers won't make you the stig.
go to the events and learn everything you can about autocross & your car. then go from there.

oh yeah, you should probably have posted this in the auotX section.

Geezer 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.

mikebontoft shoot that's what I get for wearing polyester pants.......

lol um ok.

same rules will apply to any car really.... increase your handling and grip, practice, and do your allowable "mods" for the group you want to be in.

right? but work on yo skills homes. (k I'm done screwing around)
