One additional I would block the gas pedal so the trans does not kick down @ WOT. Its pretty clumsy the way it goes about this.

Tires, brakes, LSD/M3 bushings, FMIC in the first go. If you hit heat related limp mode more cooling/better oil cooler etc.
Interesting... oil cooler after LSD? I thought the oil cooler was in the "must do" category in that just a couple laps will send the oil to acidic temps?
