S2000 is a great track car in very experienced hands once the safety needs have been taken car of, but for everyone else they are hairy beasts. Even with a small amount of horsepower they get out of shape very easy, kinda like a modern day AC car with a little less power.

Good news if you can drive it fast, you can probably drive anything fast.

Bad news you might kill yourself trying to drive it fast.

From a cost standpoint you could turbo-charge or supercharge a miata for less and have an easier car to sort out. The aftermarket is endless and inexpensive for Miata's. Cheaper tires, brakes, safety equipment, etc.

Hey and if you still want a hairy car you could always do an ls swap into a miata.

E36's are great fun too and if you want a bit newer the 350/370z platform has solid racing potential as well.
