What would you get first (first time track)

If you had a budget of only $4,500 - what are the first three things you would get to make an 02 954 a track-only machine? Com'on you track-junkies, I know you have an opinion on this

I am not a track junkie but these seem obvious to me:
Frame sliders
Steering stabalizers

And obviously you have proper protective gear

What GFJ said, in that order. If you are concerned about your street plastic you could invest in track plastics, after you've done the other things first.

Re: What would you get first (first time track)

Great guys, appreciate the feedback. Have a damper already and full leathers, AS boots, etc...

Shock, forks, and school...check! I'm on Dan Kyle's site poking around now!
