Welcome, and great photos. As Bill said, it really is nice to get some track enthusiasts from around the world logging in and participating!Sorry if I left that part out. It's just that in order to swap out those tiny oem brakes, I will need to change my wheels as well, and that's not something that I can afford to do right now.
Tires are Goodyear Assymetric 3 for now. There arent a lot of extreme performance choices for the stock tire size. Suv's nowdays come with sportier sidewalls.
So that leaves me pretty much with a good handling pack for now.

Ford Performance all day long, the parts are designed to work together, that link didn't work, or they no longer carry that kit, but those parts are still out there.
@VoodooBoss ran it with the adjustable dampers in the -MGTAA kit. I believe he would recommend it. That said, he did end up upgrading to the CorteX/JRi SA coilovers.Is it sorted enough, or does it leave a lot more room for improvments?
I don’t know of anyone doing a direct comparison. But I think the adjustability - particularly in the dampers is easily worth the ~$500 on any car that sees track time.My question is if the adjustable kit is worth 500$ over the non-adjustable one? If anyone did a comparison between the two that would be great.
I'm old school, I just don't like coil overs on a street car, mainly because they will need to be rebuilt about every 20K miles. They do let you adjust your ride height, but that is the only advantage I can see, except possibly weight, but it's a street car so....The Ford Kit is a fire and forget thing.
