Tracking the R55 JCW

Just got a R55 JCW.
Came from a two R56 JCW. tracked one of them with suspension and some mods.

All N18 engines!

Just wondering what people have been doing to their R55 and which part is the best bang for the buck to add for track.

I know the basic, coilovers, sways, etc. just wondering if that made a huge difference since R55 handling is different from R56.

I added a TSW chassis brace and SS brake lines, in addition to a 19mm adjustable rear sway bar on the firmest setting. These all helped the Clubman as they have a little more weight and chassis flex than a hardtop. Didn't get around to coilovers before the car was sold, but that would have been next on the list.

It did pretty well, considering that it's a station wagon
