Re: Performance advice... let me know what you think.
For road racing I would suggest brakes. That will be the first thing to go. Upgraded Brake Pads, SS Lines, and high-temp brake fluid flush. If you have 17" or larger rims, you can upgrade to the GT spec rotors. GT rotors, upgraded pads, SS lines, and brake fluid can be done for ~ 1/2 of your budget.
I would suggestion shocks/struts/CC plates, but if this is your first outing, target the brakes first and then if you like it you can dig into the other stuff.
