I have just received a set of Team performance wheels in 15" x 7" Front and 17" x 8" Rear. I have a 70 mile drive to/from the track everytime I go and will use these wheels/tires only for the drive to the track and tracking. I have a base Elise with no other mods (yet). I have looked at these options:

Hancook RS-3
225/45/15 Front and 245/40/17 Rear

Toyo R1R
205/50/15 Front and 245/40/17 Rear

Yellowstuff brake pads

Does anyone have an opinion which tire setup would be best for the track or if there is any fitment issues with them? Is there a better brake choice that can be used on the street and track?

true there are a million threads. I don't know why you'd shod your "track only" wheels with regular tires though (R1R). Look into NT01 or RA1.
