Don't bother making adjustments to the car or trying to build it for AutoX. None of the changes will make any kind of difference if you don't have any racing experience or any past results to compare them to. You could go out there with the optimal setup for everything, and lose to a bone stock Prius, simply based on driving errors. Once you've gotten to the point where you're having trouble beating your times, THEN make adjustments to alignment, tires, suspension, etc.
Oh, and invest in a 4-point harness. Aside from tires, a harness is without a doubt, the most useful upgrade you can make for racing.
I've only done a few events, and I can tell you from personal experience, more power = slower times lol. At least for FWD anyway...

The "don't mod" part was pretty much for the guy who said he was going to "build a street class car."
