1) Is the extra $600 for the pricier Potenza's, and similarly priced tires, worth the money? Am I losing out on anything by only spending $600?

2) I assume that transitioning from RFT's to non-RFT's is a smart move, especially if I am looking to go to the track. Anyone disagree with that?

Any feedback would be awesome.

Right now you can get some great deals on summer tires, I've never had any issues with Pirelli's and tire rack has them for the cheap right now.
