Help me choose budget buildup parts

Here is the scoop. I am almost finished with my '93 drag car and I have an interest in doing a budget auto x car. Here are the parts and components that I have. I would appreciate some help filling in all of the blanks.

'89 4cyl notch
Disc Brake 5 lug 8.8" rear from a Lincoln
Stock 5.0L from the Lincoln (Misc. Bolt Ons)
Tremec TKO, Clutch, Bellhousing
MM Subfame connectors


Here are the items that I think will put me at a good starting point for the local track.

6 point roll bar (weld in)
5 lug conversion for the front
driveshaft loop
Wheels and Tires
5 Point Harness
Coilover Setup With new shocks (recommendations?)
Strut tower brace
Adjustable CC plates

What am I missing? Never really done auto x before. Would like to have a solid reliable car that won't let me down as I am learning. Thanks for the help.

Looks like you'll have a pretty solid set up. If you fell the money bruning in your pocket, spend money on the safety equipment first. Some better front brakes wouldn't hurt either.
