A while ago, one of the instructors at a BMW CCA track day had a Cobb-tuned WRX. The damned car caught on fire on-track right in front of me and had to pull off to the side, mostly due to an oil leak that came in contact with a hot engine. The car was very fast when it worked, but what you had to put up with (beyond the catching fire part) was pretty unacceptable. Every stock car right now has capabilities beyond >99% of the driving population anyway, so modding for performance reasons is kind of pointless: it basically reinforces bad habits instead of teaching you how to drive properly.
