I run track days on a billiard table smooth track in a very hot climate with an under-powered old antique; my strategy is to work on smooth transitions from deep lean angles to full power exits. The Q3's have been excellent for this, three days is all I get out of the rear tire although on the hottest days it starts to get greasy on the edges, with predictable recoveries, after 20 minutes into each session. Need to watch the tire pressure closely, but have yet to feel the front tire is going to let me down although it does slide nicely.

As said above by others, so many variables are at work in tire choice that you really can't take much advice from other riders experiences. So, I recommend at least trying a set of the Q3's because they are a relatively inexpensive option that many people praise.
