Autocrossing

Is anyone autocrossing your PPV? I'd like to give it a try in the spring. Any tips?

Proper seat support is probably one of the things that would help, and a 4-point (or more) harness.

Obviously if you were to get really serious, there's tires/wheels, sway bars, springs (to a lesser degree) and possibly shocks to consider. OE brakes are good, but it's easy enough to move up to full-Brembo if desired.

I wouldn't spend money on modifying the engine further until some time is spent in the auto-x environment and learning the car behavior & capability, using the traction control & stabilitrak on/off features, the transmission shift features (if you have Sport mode available), etc.
