That is the Florida Forum, you can find more out about local racing. Currently the closest track that is running regularly is in Royal Palm Beach, we practice under the lights till 10:30 at night (wednesdays). I attached a pic of the track if your intertested. ( hopefully for you Coral Springs will re-open soon)

As far as the car is concerned. There are few things that kinda of stand out without knowing what your racing on. The body really is a carpet body, so it does not work as well as, say a Mazda 6 or Stratus 3 AP. Tires, the most common tire in florida is the CS 27, they last a long time, work really well ,and handle the heat. ( the last state race at our track we temped the track at 150). The other things.. I would say drop the mod, and put stock motor in the car till you are really familar with it... You will have less breakage, and will make the car a little easier to get the handle on it. Shocks and roll center are specifc to tracks and surfaces, so that is really a moot point without more info

Either way, feel free to ask Q's in the specific forums, or ask people at the local track to help you out. Hanging thread out here in the general forum can be brutal sometimes...
