Default megan tracks vs. megan street coilovers

well I am about ready to get some coilovers just in time for the Florida winter meet. What im trying to decide is on which of to get, either the megan tracks or the megan streets. I do daily drive the car, and I am mostly getting them to lower the car. Im going to put the top of the fender just past the tire. but I am not sure which of the coilovers to get. I know the streets have a 12kg spring rate all the way around and the track has 12kg in front and 14kg in the rear. Everything else is the same. both 32 way adjustable. what Im wondering is am I going to feel that much of a difference between the two? I do push the car in the mountains every once in a while and I want to help the handling a bit. And im sitting on tanabe springs right now. thanks guys!!

12kg spring rates are quite a bit as is, so the car will ride stiff. With the tracks though and the 14kg rate in the rear, the car will oversteer more. It depends if you like that sort of feel. Personally I do not and would get the streets, or even something with a softer rate in the rear than front.

Tracks are better than the Streets imho. I rode Streets for a while and then upgraded to the Tracks and have been happy ever since. The shocks seem more matched to the springs in the Tracks than the Streets were.

I will be waiting on your write up as well. I can't decide weather to get the street or track. I don't daily my car and I might go to track once or twice in a year.
