The search bar is a good way to get started, a lot of people track these cars, but from what I can tell more people AutoX them. It's a perfectly capable track car, it has solid suspension geometry and performance parts are abundant. My advice would be to get more wheel time with the car before you start thinking about suspension. The driver mod will make you much quicker than any other mod which will probably only shave you .1 seconds per 100$.

The track suspension of choice on these forums seem to be Redshift Chris's Koni/ Neuspeed Springs. Most people say it's the best sub 1k for these cars.

upgrading your brake pads is a necessity for these HPDE's. Stock pads will get you nowhere.

Keep it stock for some time, just change pads/fluid and get at least 3 events completed before changing anything. Focus on your driving skills and when you do start modding take it slow and allow your driving style to adjust.
