I tried the H2 last summer. Its a great tire. The traction is the best I've ever experienced but when they go, they're gone. Its pretty sudden too. Remember that they need to be warmed up a lot. A couple of smooth laps on the track before getting into it.
I do prefer the Super Corsas but they have the same issue as the H2. They totally suck in the rain. I've since been running the Sportecs and I like them better. The traction isn't quite as good at the H2 but the feed back is much better and they warm up very fast. They are good in the rain too.
What's the same about the Supercorsa's, as the H2's..? I've run the SC 1's and 2's...even after they go off, they will still slide with some degree of predictablity...i.e. I had a SC2 on the front, entering a highspeed right hander, on the track, the front started to slide, a good 2 feet, never went away, I just stayed on the gas, at about 110 mph, and it came back..I've run pilots, and when they go, your down..Also, the Supercorsa's, or Metzler Rennsports..same tire, different tread pattern..will warm up much faster...Compounds for the Supercorsa's/Rennsports are as follows.
The Sportecs are a good tire, and they do work well in the rain, for riding on the street, but, for the track, the Sportecs/M-1's, have limited traction, depending on how hard/fast you ride...
