first you will need to get a good set of tires, bf goodrich makes a couple of nice sets. you will then want to go for the suspension setup, get a good set of adjustables rom koni or tein. this will allow you to adjust suspenion components for different setups. you will want skid plates and a stiffer body, so a roll cage isn't out of the question. try to relocate what you can to the rear of the car, especially the battery. You may also want rear disks to help w/ e-braking. not needed but it helps.

if you have a balanced car, the car is easier to control, if ur rear end is too light, then it will be all over the place!
