Don't get me wrong, the DW is a great tire - I have them on my CTS-V and they do everything well. But for raw grip they can't match the Star Spec (or the various other extreme performance tires that are basically designed specifically for Street Touring competition).
What do you guys use as a track? Is it Tarmac paved?
