alright now that i have had time to think, the tires held the road very well but gum'ed up just as good.... my top tach (ish) was around 12k in second gear i cant say what speed that was cuz the speedo was taped off (stock gearing if you know where to find it) i did take the trackdaz academy and i was prolly the fastest out there (other then the instructors) with all said and done, i would FOR SURE purchase these tires againalright, the tire pressure i ran first was 26/28 but i had to adjust to 27/28 cuz the rear tire was a slipping a touch
i ride B group with ease but not the fastest there but at a faster pace then others
Now on to the tire after finding a good tire pressure, i kept going faster and faster into the corners (not my imagination but actually going faster)
they held out well under the torque of first gear at 11k rpm and accelerating hard out of the corner leaned over
they held really well... very sticky...
however this does mean i wont be able to gauge how many miles they last on the street due to the trackday wear....
and yes paytheon, power ones are a better tire, but they exceed my current needs
let me know if you have any other questions, the track was streets of willows

so hardracing.com when i find the time to enjoy these tires a little more, you may have to mail out another set of tires for me :fact
.I was thinking of getting these particular tires and have been doing a lot of research on them. After reading this review and the one posted in it (link) I'm sold and will definately be swapping out the Dunslops for a set of these. I transitioned from the stock Dunslops on my 08 R6S to 2CT's and bye bye chicken strips - enough said. I'm sure the newer more improved Michelin's won't dissapoint. Although I doubt I will get the same mileage out of em on the 1 as I'm getting on the 6 (5k in on the 6 and looks like at least 3k left). Damn rear tire on the 1 is at 3/32" and I've only got 1600 miles on it. Guessing after 2500 it will be toasted. I'll be happy if I get 5000 out of the Power Pure rear tire on the 1. I guess only time will tell. :dundun:
.I just switched from the pilot power 2ct to the power pure. The softer compound power pure is awesome when warm, but f*cking sketchy when cold. U-turns when it's cold in the morning are bad news. When i tracked the 2ct at Buttonwillow I noticed that I was significantly quicker on cold tires than those are racing slicks. The harder compound warms up quicker and holds greater lateral loads at lower temperatures. So, my take on the power pure: good for canyon carving (haven't tracked them yet), dangerous for commuting/low tire temperature riding.
what tire pressure are you running on them?I just switched to the Pures myself. Lots more feel than the Q2s I had been running. The Dunlops were great when warm but made me a little nervous when cold and wet. No issues with the Pure. Have about 500 road commute miles and they still look new.
