or a confidence booster and that alone is worth a few seconds too
Not really a waste of money when the price is virtually the same. I don't know what the prices for michelin/dunlops are but it looks like the Pirelli DOTs are more expensive than the slicks. Only reason I would run DOTs is if I was racing a class that doesn't allow slicks.

I am sure a lot of people could go faster than me on these rs10's. However, it is mostly a confidence thing for me, especially with the price of the rs10 and the dunlop 7455 being about the same, i figure why not use a slick. But I am grateful for all who have posted and told me about other purchase options for slicks other than dunlop. Thanks guys.
