Mike - Is this (AK2100) the Bilstein unit? Or some other controller. It would be great to have a controller
that you could manually program, without resorting to proms.
For what it's worth, I've tried both Tour, and Sport settings on the stock controller at the dragstrip, (with
stock shocks, and front sway bar attached). The best 60ft. times (in the 1.70's, 1.76 the best), were
obtained with the controller on Tour. So, just from my subjective experience, I think I'll stick with Mr.
Lingenfelter on this, and keep it on Tour.
On tires, I've quizzed a number of racers around here about which they like better BFG DR's, or Nittos.
At the time, over a year ago, the consensus seemed to be BFG's were stickier, but Nittos were longer
wearing, and better in the wet. So for the strip, I stuck with the BFG's. and after 50 or more passes, they
got the job done, and wore evenly (even with all that squat:)).

That's basically what I did to my car when I first got it while trying to
see how it did at the autocross. Perf setting was useless, so I disconnected
the actuators and turned the fronts to full firm. Of course this isn't
necessary now that I have the AK2100 controller and others mods. I actually
keep both controllers in there for a vast array of shock settings depending
on my needs.
