Default R Compound Question

For those of you who have run R comps, can you give me some feedback and are the Toyo RA's worth the extra money when compared to the Kumho's (V700/Victo's)? Thanks.

Jon

RAs are not as sticky as Kumhos, but last much longer. They are not as prone to overheating as Kumhos. That's about it in a nutshell. I've been told that RAs tend to drive more like Hoosiers as far as their tendency to "skate".

I run the v700's and have been pretty happy with them, except for the strange wear. I can send pics if you want. I think a lot of it was that I was running them full tread depth in the dry. I am getting the RA's when these wear out.

Can I venture a guess? He's doing what alot of us are doing. Waiting for Cobb to release their products. I'm gonna wait 'til they develop some maps for the most common mods. But I'm definitely down for $495(?) if they can develop some maps that'll minimize the dyno time.
