Default anyone run the Avon tech RA's?

They are the same price as RA1's from tire rack on clearance. Do they last as long as RA1's? How's grip? I hear they're kinda heavy, but that could be more tread since its a full slick, and not a rain tire.

I've heard from a local national level guy that he liked them when he used them. He runs hoosiers now. I've been looking into them as well

Tech RA's-
Are not super temp sensitive like a V710
SUPER stiff sidewall
Good wear, but not as good as a RA-1

So, faster than a RA-1 but slower than a V710/Hoosier. Everyone I know likes them just fine for AX, I dont know of anyone tracking them
