Might be better off asking in the performance forum, if you haven't.

I think the KYBs should be fine to point. How fast is the car? Front shocks are probably more important. The rear just needs something that won't collapse. Front shocks have to let the front up and then down at a good rate to help transfer the weight to the rear.

KYB's are all you need at least into the 11.00 second range.
