Default Yoko Race Scrubs vs New R6's (which is faster)

Which is faster?

I have had kind of an unorthodox method to trying new tires, I started with old Pirelli Pzero's and then my first R-compound was a Hoosier R3S03 which I got lots of track time on. Then I got some sport cups and now Yoko scrub slicks that I bought from the guy that many people here buy from.


I have yet to try R6's though, but I know the Yoko's as scrubs are much faster than the Sport Cups, but so are the R6's.

I want to know if I'll lose much time, if any when I need DOT legal tires for time trial competitions. Which would likely be new R6's.


So which is faster new R6's of Scrub Yoko advan slicks.

yoko scrubs would be a lot faster than new hoosiers from what ive seen on cars that run both.

I was hoping that wasnt so, I guess I'll have to try some R6's to see how my car likes them. The Yokos slide, but it's very controllable IMO. I think I could get MPSC within 3 seconds of the scrubs, but it wouldnt be easy.

3 seconds is an eternity. I chased a Vette around Barber last weekend who was on Yoko's. Not sure what compound he was on or their age. It did not look to me like he was sliding around as much as I was on the R6's (the R6's had two heat cycles).

Barber

Could be I was pushing a tad bit harder than him and the weight of my car (3590 w/ me)

Oddly enough the only place I slid was exiting 5 (and the braking zone entering) and entering 15 (I think, the one right before the last turn). They really got squirly under hard braking.

And used hooseirs more than a few heat cycles can be REAL slow. If you dont wear them out first, they turn in to stones
