Default Wanting to buy First car with Street Racing capabilities

I am looking to buy a car that has the capability of being modded, and is able to street race. I am looking on craigslist and am on a budget of $9000. I have read that RWD is the way to go? 5spd vs 6spd? 4cylinder vs 6 or 8?

So far I have found Honda Civics to be reliable and capable.

--What do you think of a 2001 Audi TT 5spd?1

A small tid bit. I do prefer great handling over extreme speed.

anywho, any information I should know about looking at racing cars, mods that are common, buying a car with mods already? reliability of the car as a daily driver? and anything is appreciated!

I am buying the car in USA Arizona (phoenix preferably) -- If anyone decides to peak at cars on craigslist for me!

(Looking for $9000 max. Reliable. Will last a few years, good MPG is a plus and most importantly -- Can be a street racing car!)

Sweet! Another Arizonian! There's plenty of Subaru's on Craigslist. I have a buddy who owns a shop (316 Motorworks) in Flagstaff who has designed a fuel system for the 05-07 2.0 Boxer engines.

He's made it available after he took the same setup to the American Open Rally (just this past season) using his team's WRX. So, it works.

Anyway, that's my suggestion.

A Subaru huh? What is so great about them? O_- I actually do not hear much about them. Not like you do with Audi and Mustangs anyway!
