You're in NH - temperature isn't as important as it is for me in 100+ degree AT NIGHT (we don't run in the daytime in July and August) temps. We see surface temps higher than most cars see TIRE temps after running, lol. Also factor in your surfaces - Nellis AFB and Wendover (more a Utah region site, but I get up there a lot and it's hot there too) have EXTREMELY grippy, tire-eating surfaces.
If most of your events are on asphalt and summer temps aren't 100+, the A6's may very well be the better choice.
Regarding lowering... If you're lowered AND on R-comps, you're in a Street Modified class, which is a heavy class. GM stage kits, smaller pulley, and many other mods will also put you in these classes.
Stock class let's you run R-Comps, but with VERY few mods allowed. basically you can do cat back, drop-in filter, shocks (not springs or coilovers, JUST shocks), and brake PADS only. Wheels must be stock size and diameter, and within 6mm (actually 1/4 inch, but that's not how it's measured, lol) of stock offset.
Look into STX. You can do CAI, headers (some restrictions) and exhaust, coilovers and rear swaybar, strut tires, wheels are almost completely open, brakes are more or less open, and a reflash (think HPT with the stock injectors). Can't increase boost or run a smaller pulley. Also - no R's, tires must be UTQG 140 or higher. ore mods allowed, cheaper, longer-lasting rubber... A good place to go if you want to mod your car but want to take Solo II seriously.
