ya??? so? every track is different to include weather conditions and how you ride. streets of williow, willow springs, chuckwalla all wore my tires on 2 diff bikes differently in the last 6 weeks.

plus, 10 session at 20min each, thats 200 min or 3+ hrs of track riding.

now you know to buy 2 rears at a time :)

From our Michelin rep stateside :twocents

Sticking down to the cords, sweet!!! That's quite a few laps on a big old RC-51. I'm told Willow is a lot like BIR, and both tracks are both hard on tires. The "C" spec may be the solution?

Power One's and Diablo Supercorsa's are not renown to last very long.
And if the track's very abrasive you ought to opt for a B front and a C rear... ;)

Why can't a Power One be flipped?
Michelin rep. says ...

Flipping the tire will show some tearing on the sipes as they are at the wrong angle for rear drive.

I did notice the air pressure mentioned they are using for the B rear is way over inflated. We race the A, B or C Power One's at 22 PSI
