What are some racing innovations, that have translated into public cars?

I know they performance and new technology is developed/advanced in racing. But what are some examples?

How far back yu wanna look? Disc brakes, air spoilers and dams, synchronized transmissions, rack and pinion steering, ABS, almost all tire technology, anti sway bars, all traction devices from fourth bars to traction bars, dual and triple plate clutches, electronic transmission shifters, turbocharging, and on and on. Technology that goes or stops or turns faster will always end up in transportation cars eventually to accomplish performance but also efficiency, economy and styling.

    DSG/Direct shift gearboxes is a good example. Also things like KERS are making their way into roadcars, with companies like BMW using the lost energy to charge batteries etc.

    Fuel injection (as opposed to carburetors).

    Coilovers, carbon brakes, carbon fiber, defusers, launch control, gauges but best of all E85 fuel when tuned right you can make heaps of power and it smells great.
