 As you will learn, Autocrosses can range from simply a day and a time to hang out with friends to running national events that are very, very competitive. The amounts of money people spend preparing their cars also ranges significantly. At most events, you will see some very well-prepared cars that use special autocross tires (the tires have a softer rubber compound that heats up very quickly, and really sticks to the pavement) to people simply using their ordinary daily commuter street tires.

I know first-hand that it can be extremely tempting to go out and buy some of these go-fast parts, but don’t spend money your money now! Do a few more autocross events with your car as-is and get as much seat time as possible.

If you really want to do something to upgrade your car, go out and buy some better street tires after the ones you currently have on your car are worn out. If you intend to participate in high performance driving events in the near future, consider buying an inexpensive extra set of rims for these tires. The best thing you can do to decrease your lap times is to focus on learning as much as you possibly can about race driving techniques.
