1st Mini

So I am going to seriously look into buying a mini.

Any words of wisdom for a 1st time buyer / rider of a mini?

Of course I will want this thing on the track so any performance parts recommendations?

What kind of mini? They come in all shapes and sizes. A crf150f is technically a mini

Probably a 100 / 110. I'd like something with a bit of power although I don't know a lot about the mechanics. I'd rather just get on and go fast. If a bike with less cc's can get great performance with some modifications then so be it.
