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.
This is what i was going to say. Its hard to call 1 tire "faster" than another without some serious test data.
