Nice find. Those will improve track performance on any car. I hear the MKZ is the best handling Lincoln ever made. Thats not really saying much though. I've tweaked my handling some and wear a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport 2 UHPS tires. I was surprised by how well such a heavy car can handle. I have never really thought about taking it on a road track, though I have found myself wishing the old local 75-80 Dragway hadn't closed down so I could go to "Run What You Brung" Night again. Keep me posted.

Will do. I need to take delivery of my car first which will most likely be early May. Then put some mileage on. So won't be tracking until summer.

I will not be race tracking, but do plan on some drag strip fun for times and optimization tests. Especially now that I have a Livernois tune to enjoy.
