Anybody tried the new Shinko 003ra?

Im about to order a shinko 003 u-soft or the new drag tire they have, its a little higher in price, ive seen one in person, feels alot softer and seems to be more flat than the normal 003, just wondering what would be best for a street/strip strecthed 10r that might occasionaly carry a passenger. Ive owned many sets of Drag Radial tires on vehicles so i didnt this would be much different. Just dont want to buy the tire if its too soft for occasional street use.

05 Zx10r, strecthed, lowered, geared, piped, ect.......

I tried it and it works really good butI prefer the power one cus its lighter and I can use it with more lbs of air! Only bad thing is that is pricey!!

if your going to be ridin the bike on the street i would go with the shinko 003 vs shinko hook up. the hook up is going to wear faster on the street but will give you better traction at the track.

See thats what i was worried about it wearing quick, but i would like to get those 60's down, so i might try it. Which is heavier the 003 or the drag? Also what about turns, will it be ok to ride normally? I dont ride turns hard but i dont go slow either lol.

for the $$$ you can't beat the shinko 003. i think that tire will do just fine with wat your tryin to do.
