Just use any performance tire if you're only going a few time a year. Vreds, PSS, AD08 will be FINE. Especially if you're starting off with tracking. You don't want a super sticky tire covering up driver flaws.
Those super sticky tires tend to break away more suddenly than street tires.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
