For a street track suspension set up I would go with the Smart Racing Fox adjustable front shocks and Wevo Ohlins adjustable rear shocks. This would allow you to soften the suspension for street driving, and stiffen for the track. The Fox shocks also have an adjustable spindle height.
I've run the S/R F10, F30 & F40 re valved shocks. I had the F30 re-valved shocks in our street/track car. It was great for the track, but too stiff for the street. I'm using the F10 set up on my turbo. Good for the street, but I think it will be too soft for the track.
I would also go a coil-over helper spring in the back as other folks have recommended. You could snug it up at the track to deal with turbo squat.
I have the 935 front suspension setup on our race car. I don't see any benefit for the street, and would spend that money somewhere else.
