Victor, I'm jealous of the JRZs, know you will love them. It's on my list of "nexts"!

Regarding toe in/out for street/track, it's really simple to have your cake and eat it too. Have your alignment guy mark the left front tie rod with two marks while he has the car up on the machine, one for street (mine is 1/16" in) and one for track (1/16" out). It's literally a 30 second switch when your changing the wheels. Mine is about a 2/3 revolution of the tie rod with a 13mm wrench and your all set. Simply reverse it when putting street tires back on.

And the amount of toe your talking about is minuscule really. If your talking degrees, then .03 is less than 1/32" and shouldn't give you bad tire wear whether in or out.

Good luck! Please continue to update us on the JRZs after your next track event.
