Please help

Strange that I just read a post on auto-x racing.

Alright, my first race is May 10th. I'm hoping to get some kind of suspension upgrades before then. But what I need to know is, what kind of upgrades? I have absolutely no idea what I need to know for upgrading suspension. Well, besides front and back strut bars, but that's about it. Help.

u could get the TRD sportivo kit... it comes with high performance struts lowering springs upper strut and sway bars and bushing it costs $1,500... if you want to go all out buy the hotchkis total vehical system it's the best suspension system for the celica but it cost about $2,500 it is able to make ur celica pull 1.03 g's when cornering i recomend this thumbsup but the TRD kit is good as well

Ok, what about tires? Is there a tire that's geared more towards cornering than flat out traction?

Yup Hotchkis sway bars and springs will run you about $500.00 or $600.00 not including installation and you'll be flyin.

Get yourself some Kumho ecstas or some Toyo proxes and if I could make a suggestion leave your car stock for the first time and get the feel of it.

Then get your upgrades.
