I could drop a couple $K on a decent suspension (Moton, MCS, JRZ) similar to what I have in the current car but with less spring. Maybe 600-700 fronts and 800 rears, keep the settings softer then dial them up once at the track. Get some wheels and good tires (hoosiers or something similar) and I would be lap time wise up there with my M3. Plus I could still drive it on a daily basis.

What would you recommend in the 30-40k price range.

I know that's what I'm worried about. I'm waiting to hear back from a guy I know that is a good driver and has tracked both.
