if they are the regular pilot powers, i used them for my first couple trackdays with no prob. considering that was really not that aggressive of riding.
then switched to the 2ct's and used those all last season. Had no problems with them either, but took 'em off before they even came close to the point of no return. now just got some bt002rs.

Or are you talking about the pilot power race tires? never used them.

They're the new DOTs I believe.

I've heard about them, but I haven't seen any feedback.

They're supposed to be top-notch. Can't wait to hear someone's take on them. Unfortunately, most guys around here run Bridgestone or Pirellis. To Google we go.......

They are the power one Race tires, Soft compound. I bought them from Keith at Road and Track, I know he knows his stuff when it comes to racing and tires, But wanted more feedback from others. I just took off a set of Bt-002rs and this will be my first time on Michelin's.

There is a particular reason I'm still with the 'stones and haven't gone back to Michelin.

Pilot Powers served me WELL on the street. But I've had more consistancy with the 002 Ride Smart on the track. I still haven't tried a DOT tire yet, probably won't anytime soon either (selling bike)

I went back to the Michelins this year as well. Better feed back and edge grip over the Power Race IMO....... Liked them enough to buy a seasons worth. As with the PR, be careful at the end of useful life as they don't give a lot of warning when they go off. More than the PR, but not as much as 'stones or 'rellis. A great tire as they all are really, unless you are getting Shinko's or Maxxis, you can't go wrong with any of the four major brands. Get them hot and mind the pressures and heat cycles.
