After a conversation with one of the guys testing and giving feedback for the RE-11A Im pretty excited for its release.

Also looking forward to how the new generation of extreme performance summer tires stacks up once they're all released.
Ummm, where did you hear that the Dunlop's were faster than the RE-11's? I haven't seen any tests suggesting such a thing. Tire rack did a comparo of 9 different tires but didn't include the RE-11's and the lower rated S-04's finished second in that comparison and the Z1's finished 8th out of 9 tires. If the RE-11's were included stands to reason they would have finished even higher. The Z1's may be really good for auto-x, but on the track I've found the RE-11's and PSS's to be quite a bit quicker.

Here is the link to the story.

I haven't personally tried all of those tires, but the RE-11's have been the quickest I've tried on the track so far.
