You might need to swap out brake pads at the track (or find a compromise street/track pad to get started) and make sure you have good fluid. Pads and rotors will wear quickly.

Tires will also become a wear item pretty fast, so if you track frequently, a spare set of wheels will be useful so you can maintain some decent daily driving tires.

Search the Motorsports forum for info about a good track day options. Remember that a lot of extra power means a lot of extra slowing down for each corner, so make sure the car can do that lap after lap.

would you say then that a good set of tires and brakes/pads is really all you need to do with handling in terms of tracking these cars?

First, I don't track my car (only autox), so this is second hand information I've picked up by reading the forums. That's why I suggested searching the Motorsports forum.

That said, I think there is a big learning curve associated with track driving and your experience and skills will dictate what is needed or wanted. An expert driver might need/want all sorts of upgrades that don't make sense for someone in the beginner run group. Maybe start out simple and mod the car as your skills increase.

I do think brakes are critical from day-one though.
