You're thinking into this too deep, I am talking about a tire that was ment to be a TRACK DAY tire, like the superbike pro
A q2 is a STREET tire that can be used at the track. We are not talking about race DOT's here either Tdub

Re: Track tire - Front vs. Rear

2 or 3 to 1 front. Depends on many things tho. What track, what tires, what temps, etc. If it's cold, a rear tire can be junk in 15-20 laps from cold tearing.
