    Suggested option on the new Atom 3 for someone on a tight budget

    Suggested option on the new Atom 3 I should do on my order


    OK I am 99% sure I am going to order a new Atom 3. My budget keeps me at the base car. My focus is mostly track days but some public roads. Any options I really should consider now that is harder or cost more to update later?


    I was considering one or two out of the following or just stay at base model


    Polished Stainless Steel Exhaust System Option 649.77
    Remote Brake Bias Adjuster $250
    Quick release Steering Wheel Hub Option 275.00
    Anti-Sub Belt Option 4
    Aero Screens Option 146.85
    17" Wheel Package (17"x9" rear) Option 650.00
    Side Panels Option 400.00
    12V Power Source Option 66.00
    Battery Master Switch Option 275.
    Alcon Track Brake Package Option 2,995.00

    Also this confuses me, does it not come with a aluminum radiator?

    if you are on a budget then I would look at options based on how easy they are to add after the fact



    Polished Stainless Steel Exhaust System Option 649.77

    You can remove the existing exhaust and polish it you would like. The polished ones become unpolished pretty quickly after driving anyway

    Remote Brake Bias Adjuster $250

    This would be a pretty easy mod after purchase. I'v never adjusted mine once in 6 years though

    Quick release Steering Wheel Hub Option 275.00

    This would be very difficult to change after the fact if it is anything like the Atom 2. Its a good security practice to take your steering wheel with you if you leave the car anywhere

    Anti-Sub Belt Option 4

    Easily added later. I added mine after I bought the car

    Aero Screens Option 146.85

    Easily added later (5 screws)

    17" Wheel Package (17"x9" rear) Option 650.00

    team dynamics run about $250 a wheel if bought from a tire shop and take 6 weeks to order. Plus $200 for the tires. so probably $900 if you did this later and would have to wait +6 weeks (no one stocks TD wheels, they are all custom order)

    Side Panels Option 400.00

    Never used mine. I wouldnt bother.

    12V Power Source Option 66.00

    $5 part and 2 wires to the battery if you wanted to do it yourself. TMI's installation would be much nicer though

    Battery Master Switch Option 275.

    would be difficult to add after the fact - running wires to the back of the car

    Alcon Track Brake Package Option 2,995.00

    no better than the wilwoods, You gain only bragging rights that you spent more money.
