Re: Insight Needed Regarding Slicks vs. Supercorsas & Q3s...

Ive used q3, superbike pro and superbike sc3. All of them on the track. My friends have used the super corsa, but the dont last that long. If you are not running a supper faster pace, i think you are spending a lot of money on a tire that you dont need. The only reason i stopped using q3 is that they were not keeping up with my pace. I used the q3 even when i was in the slow pace of the advanced group. My sc3 is lasting quite a bit and the grip is there

Re: Insight Needed Regarding Slicks vs. Supercorsas & Q3s...

Just to update this thread with my decision.

I ordered an extra set of wheels, and then some new tires to accompany my extra set. Currently for daily commuting and canyon carving, I have Michelin PP3s mounted which are okay for that purpose, and that purpose only - just my personal experience.

The tires I ended up ordering were SP V2s in 120/70 front and 180/55 rear. Let's see if they feel as amazing as everyone said they would. I'll be trying them out at my upcoming track day. Also this will be my first track day in the advanced group. Many people have told me I'm ready, and I'm pretty sure I am - at least I hope so.

By the way, why does one tire look really shiny and the other looks really dull?

Reviving this thread as I believe I am ready for some slicks. I'm just about running a decent pace in A group - well, decent enough at my own pace to keep up with the faster folks in A group for about 1/2 - 1 full lap.

. I love 'em. However, I'm working on smoothing out my riding, my lines, my throttle control, my body position, and a whole lot of other stuff to improve. With that said, I know my lap times at various track will start to drop, I'll pick up the pace, and be a little more demanding in the "trust your rubber department."

With that said, any updates here in 2018 for decent affordable warmers?

Re: Insight Needed Regarding Slicks vs. Supercorsas & Q3s...

my old woodcrafts were cooking my pirellis last weekend. Not a lick of trouble from them in ~5+ years? The newer style is even nicer. Really like the cord disconnect feature versus others that have to be powered off.
Nothing worse than cheap warmers.

I really like my Moto-D dual temp warmers. The make single temp warmers as well that I think are just north of $300.

If you're gonna run warmers, I think it makes sense to run the slick compounds except maybe in cooler temperatures if you can't keep them at operating temps. An SC2 front (slick or dot) and SC1 or SC2 rear can last a while depending on your pace, suspension and track temps. The SC3 rear lasts forever. I went from SP v2s to SC3s to SC2 F and mostly SC1 R. There's really no going back. There is a night and day difference in my opinion, and they'll only wear worse if you start going faster. But that's the idea.

I've been doing reading in different places on the net regarding different Pirelli race compounds. I've aloso been looking at the Dunlops as well. It just boils down to which tires I choose.

Pirelli or Dunlop - hmmmm?

The two manufacturers have very different philosphies on how to build a tire, and will need a different chassis set-up if you are semi-serious. The dunlop has a much stiffer side wall and carcas, whereas the Pirelli is a lot more pliable. Something to consider depending on what you have already been running and where your set up is. If you get the chance to speak to someone who is fast and has moved one direction or the other in regards to what tire they run, that would be a good conversation to have to ask them what they changed in regards to chassis set-up.
