Lots of the guys had them on at the track, but I was stuck with Q3's, which were excellent!

I had a set of Q4s on my 1098 and wasn't really a fan coming from SuperCorsas. Slower turn in, less feedback, just meh. OH! And HORRIFYING wet ability. I've never felt a tire, better yet, bike, move around that much when getting caught in a mild 15 minute shower. The SCs never gave me any feeling like that. I tried multiple pressures on the Q4s, couldn't find a sweet spot.

Stick with the Q3+'s if you want Dunlops, the 4's wear out extremely quick. I will second that they are awful wet weather tires, I got caught in a serious downpour few weeks back with my Q3's and it was properly sketchy.

I have two sets of Q4's on my bikes now, love them. Quick warm up on the street, very sticky on the track. Don't last as long as Q3's, but I don't mind. Great tip in and hold on the sides, confidence inspiring. Kinda suck in the rain,... but about the same as the Q3.

I have a customer running them on a local track and wore them out by 150 track miles, that said Power RS was only good for 300 miles . He went back to Q3+ because the traction was good enough and he did see better mileage.

One hot day at the track, and about 3 months (500-700 miles?) on the street after that, Q4's wear quick,...
