My Ride: ESS TS2+ ZHP

What would you recommend for a better track-appropriate setup and why, remembering that this will still be mostly driven on the street. Ideally, I'd like to decrease midcorner wallow, and with it, the amount of time the car takes to settle in an S-curve transition. Any recommendations are appreciated.
Linear rate springs will greatly improve transitions. I can highly recommend AST for a street/track setup followed closely by TC Kline. I've been running my AST 4100 setup for several years now and absolutely love it - it's quite a bit of suspension for the money.
