    SC1 vs Supercorsa SP V2


    I need a new rear tire for my track R6. I currently have a Supercorsa SC1 on the back and when I look around everything I see online is the SP V2 which doesn't have SC0-1-2 compound differences.
    My question is what is the difference between the SP and SC tires?

    SC = race, SP is road hypersport. For a track tire, stick with SC.

    As I understand it:

    SP, being a street tire, will warm up faster (no warmers needed) and does not need to be worked as hard to keep it in the optimum range, but will not necessarily provide ultimate grip.

    SC, being a race tire, works best at higher temps, meaning you need to take the time to warm them up (if you don't run warmers) and need the speed to keep heat in them if you expect ultimate grip.

    Well put.

    The good news is, even the SC2 (medium, green) compounds warm up very quickly.
