I think I have to tryout the new Dunlop Q4 tires. They are non warmer required & street legal rubber thatís suppose to be a huge step up from Q3 plus rubber. A test rider lapped Chuckwalla 4.27 seconds faster on Q4 than Q3+ (for one lap).
If anyone else tries out this new rubber before me, please give feedback below or start a new Q4 tread.

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in

Interesting. Would the Q4 be a direct equivalent for the SC1 DOT?

Looks like it would be worth trying. When keep an eye out for pricing.

Iíve ran Pirelliís SCís 1 2 & 3ís at the track the most. I speak Pirelli quite well lol meaning I can interpret, feel feedback etc. They are great and taken everything Iíve thrown at them and made me faster. Problem with trying different brands and comparing is that the setup might need to be totally different. Without taking the time to work through all that it's not really going to be a fair comparison.

Michelinís 2CT Dunlopís Q3ís Bridgestone BT003ís are still street tires and comparing them to DOTís is Apples to Oranges.

Dunlop Q3 and Q3+ are street tires. The Q4 is marketed as a DOT track tire. It will last probably 3-4 track days. Marketed as no warmers needed but it's a dedicated track tire. Like going from Pirelli Rosso Corsa to SC2 DOT tire.

Oh come on!, he was just trying 4 seconds harder than before!

But seriously, I love my Q3s, can't wait to try the Q3+, don't think I can go (in sane mode) fast enough to need a Q4 on the street unless..... we get enough riders to temporarily close off 9 mile, a few bribes, shoot any animals within 20 yards of the road.........it's just crazy enough to not work.
