roll cage
steering wheel replacement (no airbag)
window net
incidental costs for events

missing anything? I know there are further upgrades, etc, but I am just looking for bare bones, just getting started basic requirements to race SCCA or NASA SPEC Focus.

That is a perfect and cheap way to get started you will need to add the few safty items that you need to run Spec Focus like safty Belts, fire extinguishter,ect.. . You would just need to remove the air bags not change the wheel. I ran the production steering wheel less air bag the first year. Like Impaled said look at the rules and if I can be of any help just pm or e-mail me at tech@capaldiracing.com
