Welcome to the site. If you do a search, you will find that most people feel the 2 most required upgrades are front tie-rods and the primary clutch. The clutch problem has been intermittent, so you just never know if your's is bad or not. Recall bolt seems to help the issues. Also at a minimun, a clutch kit will help with clutch performance.

Welcome ot the forum! I noticed in one of your pictures you have the bimini top but looks like you have the top that goes on the MAX and not the 2 seater??? As desertdog has stated, #1 is tie rods! I personally think #2 should be 4 or 5 point harnesses. After that, consider clutching upgrades in either a kit upgrade or aftermarket clutches. It will let you get more of the power ot the rear wheels. Also, do some research on changing your shock settings. This will make a huge difference in how it handles. Doors are another popular upgrade, along with hard or soft tops, lighting systems, bumpers....you name it. Start with the neccesities and then prioritize based on how deep you wallet is or on personal preference.

For tie rods i got turnkey's, mine lasted until someone hit me while i was racing. For now sit back and search for any answers you might have. Go through the vid and pic section and see what everyone has done and make your plan of attack.

Awesome stuff! I haven't really heard anything bad about any of the aftermarlet tie rods. I personally have a set from Alex at CT Racing (AREED). They are first class products and are a bit thicker than some of the others available. Here are a few pics...
