Welcome. Your signature doesn't say anything. I think you have a Camaro. You are near the Finger Lakes Region who always had a number of quality events. For car mods you should go to Sam Strano autoparts in PA. He has a website. Great prices. Awesome driver for decades now. A great company/person to support with your purchases. He had great success with F bodies and Mustangs before moving to Vettes.
Wheels, tires, shocks, bars and alignment will be your first order of business. I raced in SM a number of years with a full leather interior and even left the spare tire in it with decent National results because I was allowed to replace the turbo + boost and had huge factory rims. I've always used a chest strap to keep my torso in the seat on factory seats. You will have to actually sit in a race seat to see if you can use it. They run skinny and without a removable steering wheel can be a real hassle. Unless you trailer the car you probably won't like it for normal driving. Pay attention to the weight limits for your car. You can take out too much.
Unless you are going for trophies I recommend just getting as much seat time as you can and develop a plan of action for the car. The list can be endless with little gained.
Thanks for the info. I didn't realize I don't have a signature, here is the list of my car:
1993 Trans Am: Just decided I want to use it for AutoX
LT1 w/ LT4 hot cam kit, AS&M throttle body, moroso CAI, Full Exhaust, PCM4less Tune, Suncoast Ram Air Fiberglass hood, MGW shifter, upgraded 98-02 front brakes, Koni sport shocks 4/3, stock springs, rear tubular control arms and panhard bar, 18x10.5" C6 Z06 wheels w/ 293/35-18 Nitto NT-05 tires
I'm from Buffalo, NY and am signed up for an event at Ralph Wilson Stadium (now New Era Field) on 9/11. I contacted the organizer and she said I would be in Street Modified. I'm just so excited to finally start getting into racing that I might be getting ahead of myself...guilty. I'm just looking to have fun and maybe after a few years, start to be competitive.
As for Strano, my Koni shocks are from him and I've contacted him before, just figured I don't want to bother him again until I need to order parts.
