the best thing is to make sure you spend a lot of seat time and then think about putting the $ on the car... inve$t plenty on the driver...
If that's been taken care of, depends on the setup you have... and the $ available.
Koni's are great and adjustable, but it's a two-edged sword... it's also an area for screwing up a good suspension setup.
a Bilstein revalved to the setup you have would be ideal... but then the advantage of the Koni would be that when/if you change spring rates, you don't need to revalve the shocks and just change its settings... but there is a cost in performance and $ to it.
A nicely revalved set that matches the suspension setup is the best.
Still vote for Koni, because @ the track, there is also a little personal driving style that comes into play in the tweeking... some drivers prefer the car on a slightly different damping setting, suiting their style better... so it's tough to judge a perfectly matched shock if you're @ that level and haven't revalved shocks with all the needed specs you want.
