Steering lock, good diff (after market LSD or locker), lowered ride height, good shocks, swaybars and wheel alignment to make the best of it all. Same level of tyres all round (quality and tread) will help you learn to drive the car more neutral and induce over/under as when you want it.

Other than that, good fixed back bucket and a harness to keep you in place and help you feel the car more, then its just seat time.

Loonie's pretty much got it.

Adjustable coilovers (good for adjusting height and stiffness to suit your style)
LSD or locked diff
As much weight saving as possible
Bucket seat, preferably fixed back (you'll damage your back trying to hold yourself in a standard seat)
Harness (as above)
Hydraulic handbrake (consistent lockup is very helpful)
Strut braces and sway bars (get the suspension doing all the work and not the chassis flexing)
Suede steering wheel (the best for non-slip action)
As much lock a you can find
Good tyres all around (and monitor pressures to what suits you)
Wheel alignment (personal taste but i like: max -camber & +caster up front, toe out front, 0 everything in the rear)

I'd recommend to do a bunch of different events (motorkhana, hillclimb, circuit, drag, drift) to get to know every aspect of what your car can do and how it reacts. It's also great for seat time and enjoying driving the car after all the hard work!!
