    straight line only ?
    grip in cornering important ?

    best thing to get better grip, is shocks, proper diff (like a T2R) and a decoupled-TA (UETA)

    i automatically assumed grip for cornering would come with majority of suspension upgrades but the car is a daily driver that is why i am going with suspension as apposed to power adders. any type of susp mod that will get grip would be great cornerin is not a big issue because it wont have the power to make it an issue as it will be a daily driver for another year at the least. i mean that in a way that it wont be seein any road courses and/or street racing. and the track wont be hit for another 4 months. im still in the process of clean up work so i can get through emissions tests. if you guys can try to explain the pieces in a simple manner so when im looking for parts i won't be completely lost

    good shocks will do all of your goals pretty well to the level that might satisfy you.
