Default Any experience with Maxxis VR-1?

I'm trying to pick new tires for this coming season for my 15WRX. They'll be used for summer DD, track days, autoX, probably like 5-8 events and 10,000mi a year. They're going to go on 17x9 Mach V Awesome wheels.

I've looked at a few other options, rs3 (now 4) and z2ss (now Z3), but I keep hearing good things about these Maxxis tires like great heat cycles, good tread wear, very communicative.

I just wanted to know if anyone had experience with them on a Subaru.

TIA

A few locals have used them

They compare them to the Toyo R1R as they can take a ton of heat and abuse but are not extremely sticky like the RE71R or Rival S.

Are they using them on Subarus?

I've heard they make great "intermediate/beginner" tires for track days, but I wondered if they held up well to the weight and abuse of subarus.

Who are they buying them from, only option I see is direct from Maxsis and it isn't a great price.
