SuperCorsa SP3 vs Q4 Sportmax

I'm riding a 1299s, mostly track days. Been on SuperCorsa SP3's, which have been great but at 2-3 rear tires per season, its breaking the bank. I've heard the Q4's will warm up a bit faster and have a little less rigid carcass, but not sure I would notice any difference.

Anyone have track experience using the Q4 Sportmax? Any complaints?

I've ridden extensively on a Q4, and they are great tires. Capable of impressive lap times with little or no warm-up. They do, however, wear pretty quickly. I wouldn't expect more than three days for a rear.

I realize this thread is really old at this point, but if you're looking for longevity on the track, Q4s are not the way to go in my opinion. As Mark said, they do warm up quickly and offer great grip for a few laps. However, I've found that if you're out for a complete 20 minute session and are pushing the pace, they become greasy very quickly. I used to own a 1299 myself and ran a set of Q4s. The rear was shredded after one weekend at T-Hill.
