confidence is the critical thing for me. When I started back racing a few years ago I started on Supercorsa SC. I then tried a couple of other brands, one seemed to grip but I couldnt get it look like it was working properly, another brand started good then it just started tearing apart. I came back to supercorsa.Valid points, although the rear sliding is what put me where I am now lol.
Like I said before the issue is more me than lack of traction in the tires. I do like knowing I have the same rubber up front and out back. It's just one less variable to have. Confidence is key.
I run the same pressure all year at all 3 tracks i race at, and use warmers. The warmers here may not be technically necessary but I know with these tyres off warmers that I dont have to worry about tyres and can just concentrate of everything else.
