Suspension for the track

heyy guys i wana lower my car for the advantages of handling upgrades and im going to be tracking my car... maybe a drag or 2 but mostly like the main track so i need to be able to handle turns... i know this will be my daily but i dont think racing springs will be bad ill just be careful...so my question is... Would koni yellows to h&r Raceing springs be best for the budget?

If you are going to keep it as a Daily, then I would consider a different spring.

The H&R Race are great for the track, but will rattle your teeth on anything but a freshly paved road.

I currently have the Eibach Pro-Kit paired with KYB AGX adjustable struts and they are a good combo for track AND street use. The ride is as comfortable as Factory, but with a lowered stance.

I purchased the H&R Race / Koni Yellow setup for when I go to the track and it was a world of difference compared to my Eibach/AGX setup. Unfortunately, once I got off the track and hit regular roads it was a pretty rough ride.

I concur w/ that. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ H&R's race springs are awesome for getting it on.
