Ride used to, but they don't list them any more. You'll need to find a shop with some old stock.

Not TCS legal at all, and if you are caught with them you will be disqualified

As far as what it gains you, not a lot. It depends more on the driver and his setup of the car.

Speed-tuned gears are also exceptionally poor quality and very often the numerical gain in gearing is offset by the poor mesh causing extra drag.

+1. The commonly available speed gears are generally not terribly round, but they are made of soft cheese, quite likely Boursin or Havarti, should you need a snack.
