unless you race you never know how many mistakes can be made.
tech inspections are done just to make sure you have the basics.
car prep is on you. onething that helps is to have a check off list to be done before each track time.

Metric nuts would not thread onto standard threads would they? Different thread pitch right?

You can get them on. I've never done it on something like a car, but while working on various things at the robotics club, sometimes you'd find bolts or other crap that we didn't have any nuts to go on. It'll take forever at homedepot to find the right fitting bouncing back and forth between metric and standard bins.
