sc1,2,3 whats the difference

i baught a pair of sc3's last year but took them off as they never seemed to get warm enough on the road, is this because they are the harder compound a. eg are sc1's the soft and sc2 the medium.
used some 208.s on a trackday and it shredded the edge off and was wondering for the next one weather to stick these sc3's on or not..
do they need tyre warmers or are they not gonna get hot enough on a short track session.
never really trusted them when i had them on for the road.
any ideas

cheers

The usual track combination for SCs is SC1 front and SC2 rear.

That way they wear at a similar rate, (less wear on the front) so you can replace both at the same time.

I think they're the SC3s.

Both the SC1s and SC2s are marked as such with a small coloured logo on the side of the tyres. I don't think that the SC3s are marked at all in this way.

Someone did say there was a SC4 - but I'm not too sure. But I reckon you should avoid these anyway!

Tyreman - one for you I think!!

Thanks Tim, as you say they are not marked in any way, all I can say is they give me loads of confidence and suite me to a tee.

Stew, what pressure's are you running. I normally run 32f- 30r on track days, this allows them to warm up quicker and also gives a better contact patch. 36 -34 for road use, not that I do much of that at the moment.

If they are SC3s.......

....you should get plenty of life out of them.

Around 100,000 miles I reckon!!!!

When I last binned it at Brands, I'm sure it was because I had a SC3 fitted on the rear and could not get any heat into it, despite lots of abuse!!

So I for one, would not use SC3s on the track - unless its just to get he bike out of the van!!!

AFAIK SC3's/RS3's aren't made anymore so you're just left with the choice of SC/RS 1 & 2 now.

Tim I'm looking at changing them after less than 200 road miles, 2 days with the CSS at rocky, one washed out track day at mallory and one trackday last week at rocky. The center of the tyre is vertually untouched but the sides are quite shagged with no way of telling when the carcase will show through.
