Unless they are badly rusted or bent, reuseing them will be fine.

If you're going to lower the Cg, stiffen the chassis (boxing and/or roll cage), or use super sticky tires, then aftermarket bars would be a good addition. But it sounds to me like you really don't need to go aftermarket. You could, however, use the stiffest factory bars if you can afford them or source them used.
