Just replace the suspension and go Biju.

That is a very vague question,buddy.

There have been cars that range from sporty to SUVS that have done track days. And there have been drivers with no idea of racing line to 'raced formula cars abroad' at track days.

We were all drivers who had no idea of a Racing Line [atleast my friend and me ] when we entered the track for the first time. What we did was OBSERVE, LEARN and FOLLOW instructions implicitly!

Ok, how about stock cars with drivers with a few trackdays behind them!

For all the First timers - Please ensure you take one of the guys who've been around the track to understand your lines on the track!

And PLEASE DO NOT RACE ON THE TRACK! There are no safety marshals or Ambulances around and the entire community gets into a BIG MESS.

Its great to see such numbers and we hope they turn out on that day!

And there are little tricks to make a stock car go FAST...
