I am currently getting ready to track my e30 325is. Before I hit the track what are some parts I should replace/check/reinforce that are prone to failure.

Front control arms w/ integrated ball joints are prone to failure.

Cracks in the rear sub frame.

Fuel pumps when they get noisy.

You should also replace the water pump each time you do the timing belt and tensioner, which should be before the start of each season.

Parts for these cars are not expensive but when they break it can be, so the more preventative maintenance you perform the less track side headaches you will have.
