Need advice on what to do next.

I'm just getting into auto X, I actually went this weekend and watched a friend run his 96 M3.

I'm trying to get my coupe ready. I'm starting slow. So far I just have H&R Race springs, and Bilsteins shocks and struts. I noticed when doing my rear springs that the car has drag LCAs so those will be next to go. A friend of mine is going to take some kind of driving school in the fall so I may spend some MOD money on that or replace the stock K (Not sure yet).

So far my car suspension wise has
H&R Race Springs (down the road I will probably change to Coil overs)
Bilstein Shocks and struts
Drag LCAs
MM Tie Rod ends
FR steering shaft
Welded SFCs
MM CC plates
Cobra Front and Rear breaks
Nitto 555s all around

What should be my next step?

Thanks in advance.

I would take the drag arms off and put the stock ones on (or your choice), assuming the it has hard polys in the drag arms.

Then I would take the mod money and goto school, and save money for tires.
You dont need any more parts from the looks of it. It would be better spent in school.
I am sure most would agree.

Have fun.

1. you can go autocrossing in a camry and have fun
2. you've already modded your car into a class you can't possibly win in any region of a decent size

so stop with the mods and go out and race it and have a blast!

will the stock LCAs be allot better then the drag? I'm sure I can find some stock ones cheap.
