Ausracer is correct. They are NOT the same tire. I have run both and I know they have different shapes, etc. I too have found that the Pits last a little longer, but not a huge difference.
The traction is similar, and you can use the different shapes of the tires in conjunction with different inserts to achieve the desired air gap for your driving style and track.
I would suggest you give Take Offs a try first though. I was a faithful Sorex racer for at least one year until I tried the CS tires. They are no where NEAR as temperature sensitive as the Sorex and they last forever in comparison. I've been running the CS27's premounted from the Carpet Nats at our local races and they are great. Couldn't ask for a better, more consistant tire.
