Go learn how to drive. Autocross is a great way to learn smooth sports driving. Learn how to heel-toe and how to effectivly use left foot braking (essential in your FWD Lancer). After you have those techniques down, continue working on precision driving. The best mod you can do to any car is to learn how to dance with it.

Just save your money. Unless you are prepared to poor (...is that the wrong word? It doesn't look correct) ten grand into the car you aren't going to do anything worthwhile.

You can't really do anything with $150.

The first thing you should've done was get an EVO 8 instead.
