    I'm no expert, and I'm getting into the same thing myself. My best guess so far would be to completely redo the suspension - k-members, a-arms, Traction control arm, springs, shocks, etc etc

    I'm going to move this to the suspension and handling area where those guys can give you some help. I don't do the right turn/left turn thing so my focus is straight line as far as the suspension.
    I do know at a minimum you'd probably want sub frame connectors, sway bars, and some bilsteins.

    Strano springs, Koni 3/4 or 4/4 SA shocks are a must for the road course.

    All the givens, SFC's, larger sway bars. Sway bar diameter is going to change depending on what you are doing with it.

    If you have the money, get the unsprung weight to a minimal is always a great idea for taking the turns. That can get really pricey is a hurry though.

    Hello
    Well one thing that is going to be a must is a adjustable pan hard bar! Because when you lower a vehicle it shifts the rear end and you will be able to adjust it back to the correct position and will eliminate any binding issues as well. Then the next suggestions to help with handling. Like mentioned above would be a set of SFC's (2 pt will work just fine) to help with weight transfer and keep the dimples off of the quarter panels. Then I would suggest new Sway Bars to help with your handling and body roll control. Below is a link so show you what all UMI Performance has to offer.

    I read the product description side by side and the only difference is the price so umi wins on that. the only parts that I'm still going to go bmr are LCA and PHB because I like the rod ends. it's funny because my list started out all bmr and the more comparisons I do on products the more I keep switching over to umi for either price difference or quality difference
