Mach 1 Handling Kit vs. OEM Fox Suspension

What's the consensus on the Mach 1 handling kit (M-5400-A)? Is this a good deal on a weekend cruiser that you take to VIR 2-3 times a year? It's $500 vs. $1000 for a MM shock/strut/spring package, and my understanding is the Mach 1 handling kit does not lower the car as much as the MM packages do, nor is it as harsh on the road as the MM packages are.

Car is a 1991 Mustang GT hatch, driven 500-1000 miles on the street every year, only for pleasure, and taken on the track for High Performance Driving Schools 2-3 times a year. Current horsepower level is 425-450 to the wheels, but that might go down to 300 next fall. Currently has new stock front LCAs, new SVO upper control arms, new HD MM adjustable rear LCAs.

I think both kits are good for what they are. Is the MM kit 500$ better? Yep. Mainly due to the dampers used.

Of course, you could always read this thread 10 post down.
