Supercorsa SP V2 vs Superbike SC3
Yesterday I was able to ride on my SC3 slicks for the first time.
My first few sessions were on my 180/55 SP V2s. They didn't feel as grippy as they did when they were new as they were heat cycled to hell. The confidence was still there, just not like they were when they were fresh.
I slapped my 180/60 SC3s slicks on during lunch. Right away after my first session I realized how much taller and more grip at lean angle is available. You can get a lot more lean angle with these. I checked my tires and still had like 10mm of unused edge left after my first session. Wow. After the next session, I was down to like 4-5mm of unused tire. By the end of the day, I had like 3mm of unused tire. Now I know I can carry a lot more speed and lean angle with these. I didn't get my suspesnion readjusted, but I think I will to accomdate for the taller tire. The confidence was there even over the bumps and uneven parts of the track.
In addition, I wasn't pushing my bike as hard as I was a Laguna Seca, but I could tell you can throw a hand full of throttle at these things while leaned over, and they'll say "no problem, I'll hold you upright!"
There was no slipping, loads of stability, and it looks like the wear on them is non-existent after 3 sessions.
I'll have to push them in the future to see if the are equal to or surpass the Supercorsa SP V2s, but I'm thinking they are just a notch higher in term of grip and feel.
Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!
I love my R6, but...there's no buts...
