I suppose it depends on your goals...OP's talking about driving these to and from the track. We all agree that the RA1/NT01 compound is good because it takes heat cycle abuse and we all agree NT01's doing work well in the rain. The RA1 full tread is a popular tire choice for wet.

The RA1 has some history of blistering and chunking at full tread on dry tracks...probably worse with a 3800 lb chassis to carry with little help from alignment.
