What i got was a tire that didn't overheat and didn't slide like a clown-car. I spun the car more on street rubber than nt-01's.

I wouldn't use them on the track. I had a set of v700s that were 2 years old that moved from my garage to my shed. After mounting and balancing i found out they were worthless and ran that track day on my street tires

Thank you all for the advice.
Just FYI, I used the 3 years old R888 yesterday and my timing went down from 2.48 to 2.44 and all other mods the same. Not bad for 3 years old tires.
