I ended up ordering a set of the supercorsas and a set of warmers. I'm excited for April now to say the least

Nice, I was gonna say you should just get warmers. There's no sense in wasting sketchy warm up laps on race tires.

I have a set of solar-powered tyre warmers.

I Ride: Track Preped 07 ZX6R
After a long hiatus from a blown engine/crashing on the track on the 4th of July and then running out of funds last season, I'm starting to come back...! Just got some Michelin Power Supersport Evo's to start out on this year. FWIW: They seem significantly harder (less flexible). Not sure what that means on the track, but we'll see how it goes.

I'm slow as cold molasses out there, but hoping to see if these are any better than the Q3's I was on. Hope so considering they're around twice the price...

Anybody else who is running Dulops 190/60 tire(either D211 or GPA) that cannot get the last ~1/4 inch on the wheel?? It's not like I've been trying but I feel like I'm way faster than I used to be and can say that I have way better body positioning. Every other tire I've ran I've gotten to the edge of it and for some reason I cannot on these lol.

Does this make you feel any better? Lol. I am just a Novice racer but was also out to the edges on my street tires(Rosso corsa 180/60). These are race tires we have now, larger profile and contact patch made to handle what professional Motoamerica level racers can throw at it. Just take comfort in knowing you that much more of a safety net available to you.

Oh, you CAN get there. It just takes a lot more work.

The Pirelli 180 is 183mm wide vs the Dunlop 190 is 187mm wide. That 4mm isn't going to make that drastic of a difference.

It *IS* possible.

How'd you like the Q3's? I had to put one on the front as my SCV2 did not pass tech (last day of last season). Debating on buying a rear Q3 or just getting another set of SCV2's. Found Q3 ~ $145 on line.

Anyone know if the new SC3 slicks last as long or longer than the old Superbike Pro Slicks? I ran the Pro's a couple seasons ago and had plenty of life after 4-5 track days. Here are my SPV2's after ~ 3 tracks days.
