I wouldn't say more advanced, just riders that have more seat time and know what they want out of a tire.

The front tire choice in Pirelli has less to do with grip or temperatures, and more to do with feel and feedback of the tire. The SC1 (soft) front is easier to keep in its operating temperature (softer compound = more flex = more heat) but because I am accustomed to the harder tire, it feels vague and imprecise to me. I run the SC2 up front (medium) for better control under extreme braking and for sharper turn in (softer compound = less flex = less tire deflection = more precise feeling). It really is personal preference and both compounds are in use at my local track by some of the fastest guys out there.

^ this exactly. Not only was the V1 an inferior tire, but at this point the production date has to be at least 3 years old. I would give them a pass.
