Default Best track suspension on budget

I could care less about ride comfort I just want handling. I have no desire to maintain the couchy lexus feel so please let me know. I'm looking for something in the 1200-1500 range or less. Just let me know what you think is best. I've been looking at Gixerdrew or Stance GR+ but I didn't know if there was anything better for the money

I would stick with the Gixxerdrew setup just because you can have it made specifically for your car. If you can find used set of Bilstein/Koni shocks (even blown), then just have it rebuilt/valved for your specific spring rate then you'll have a killer combo. That's if you want real performance and not pseudo handling (ie. OMG it's stiff and has no body roll so therefore it handles!!)

What is the process for having them revalved? What would be the best options to choose for that. Like I said comfort means very little as I want this to be strictly a race car that sees occasional street duty

You send them in as if they were going to get fixed, and they will valve it according to your car's weight, spring rate, etc. Provide them information about your car and what kind of racing you'll be doing, and they'll figure out the rest. I don't remember the going rate for revalving. I don't know where you live in KY, but if you get a set of Supra Koni shocks, you can have it done at one of the three Koni service center in Hebron, KY.
