I can vouch for the Superbike Pro Slicks. Mid 1:50's pace. At least 10 TDs on them with tons of life left.

My bad. I'm not a CMRA racer. That means that I don't know anything, and Jesus doesn't even love me.

My honeat opinion bro: never skimp on tires dude. you would rather have too much grip. like dave said its more constly to wad up your bike. Not really sure what angle you are looking for.....track...street, or both. talk to the tire distributors on the forums.....lots of nut swingers round here.....
