1. Racing Precision Gear Linkage Kit
It moves the gear knob nearer to the steering wheel, and removes play in the linkage both of which give it a much nicer feel.

I saw one of the racers on here complaining that it made gears harder to get but I cant comment on that personally as not driven with one on a track.


2. Clio 172/182 Bump Steer Adjustment kit
Read the associated setup document, it might be that you arent best equipped to set it up properly if you dont know what it is/does in the first place, but basically its to stop the car wandering around when you hit bumps, but you cant just bolt it on and it work, it has to be shimmed correctly.


3. Front Wishbone Bearing Kit & Stiffening Plates, NMB bearings, Caster Adjustable
Aims to give better control of the wheel, if you arent running slicks though I suspect it will be of limited use really, so it depends on the spec of your car.
Adjustable camber is nice, but there are much cheaper ways to add caster too of course.

A mate has the gear linkage kit and he loves it. As Chip says it moves the gearknob nearer and higher so perfect for track work. Not the simplest thing to fit but if you have common sense and read the instructions properly , you should have no problem. Takes a little adjusting to make sure you can select all gears 1-5 and reverse but again patience and common sense are your friend.
As for stiffer gears, completely the opposite he has found. He had a slightly stiff notchy gear change, but with this on it is smooth as silk, and very precise in gear selection. Will probably pick one up for myself during next winters's tweeks but with spring/summer finally here I would rather spend cash on trackdays at moment.
