I will call bimmerworld and talk to them though, that's very good advice. Thank you!
In your case you need to do even more research because track only applications are relatively easy. More damper, more spring rate. You want something that has more capability while being more comfortable. Which is why I really like my dinan stage 3ish (I have GC plates). It gives you a nice drop without destroying the ride or handling. I question the performance gain but it is still comparably comfortable to the OEM suspension (non-EDC). IMO, you don't really need the front sways.

If you compare pricing, the KWs are a tad more than the TCK. The TCK apparently also requires a camber plate whereas I'm not sure about the KW. Makes sense to go with a camber plate if you are going with a double adjustable damper. Otherwise, why not just go with something that is height adjustable only or only springs.
