For starters....run what you brung.
You are used to the way the car behaves now and it will provide you with a baseline. Change tires and wheels out for your first AX and the car will handle like a completely different animal. So much so that you will wonder why you ever spent $1200+
So, get out with what you have. Don't worry about being fast or competitive. Get out, try it and have fun. The worst thing you can do is to drop a ton of money expecting to be competitive and come away disappointed.
You'll have a lot of support at these events as a novice. No one will treat you like a Leper. They'll have lots and lots of advice - listen to them. Get a few events under your belt and decide if this is something you really WANT to do, not just "try". Then think about investing in new rubber and tires.
