If you don't intend to track the car, the PF-Zs are a much better choice. I've even used them on the track for light duty.

Although I've run the PF-01s on the street, it was only because I was too lazy to put the PF-Zs back in. The PF-01s will work at normal temps, but will make so much noise, you'll be embarassed when you come to a stop at intersections.
