I vaguely recall some have used a 4kq bar on the rear,
but no btdt.

Stock offset is 37 so thats pretty close.  I run
235-40-17 and the fronts just rub the fender liners on
the track, no issues on the street.  I think for 255's
you would need to roll the fenders and space them out
so they don't rub on the tie rod ends.

I have H&R with Bilstein shocks and am quite happy. 
Not the ultimate in stiffness but corners pretty flat.
 I would drive it awhile first before going to

Yes I have the 2B pipe and it is nice but pricy. 
Definitely opened up the high end performance and
lowered the boost threshold a bit.  I went from a
modified 200 downpipe and Scorpion exhaust to the 2B
pipe and single-box 3" exhaust, and was pleasantly
surprised at the difference it made.  Not very loud at
all, either.

The lighter weight and shorter wheelbase compared to
the ur-S makes the coupe much more nimble (if that is
ever an appropriate description of a quattro).

You didn't mention it, but you will need a brake
upgrade for track duty.  With 5-bolt hubs, there are a
few more options.  I'd check bira.org for starters.
