Air bags are a comfort and look thing, not made for track work. You dont get the same amount of suspension travel.

For track, get some good super lows, koni shocks, new bushes, swaybars and some good wheels.

too soft and if you were to inflate them too high.

it's hard to strike a choice between the two but personally i would settle for an upgraded mechanical suspension

Wont brake, they just will not perform anywhere near the level of a spring and shock set up. If you want great handling and the ability to chage the ride height without changing springs, go for a coil over set up. Not cheap, can cost up to $1500 for a half decent set up but thats still under half the price of an air bag kit.
