What kind of racing you going to do? Dirt track, straight line, road course?

autocross or just oval tracks, I want to avoid any racing that requires contact like figure 8 or demo derby, at least until its seen some other races, its not a very solid build car considering its japanese its built for speed rather than taking blows. Heres a walk around of it as of right now, I tore the back seat completely out and 3/4 door panels, I did 3/4 because with my car you can put the windows back up with the drivers side controls if you have the other panels off.. well i found out i cant with this car.. oh well i guess the buick will have to sleep outside for a couple days lol.
