I have a forthcoming race on a REAL abrassive surface and planned to use some ZAC project tyres to cope with the brutal rear tyre wear (manti told me some dirty tricks that I need to try). Anyone has enough feedback with those tyres (specially when is related to a even F/R tyre wear)?
We use "Active" tyres as do approx 50% of the local guys, though quite a number run ZAC's. Their performance seem very similar, though I prefer the stiffer rim on the Active's.
I understand both Active and ZAC use the same Japanese rubber.
We've found that tyre wear is about 30% better than GRP rubber and would expect the ZAC's to be similar.
The shore ratings seem to work a bit differently and we usually run the same shore front and rear, say 40 / 40 on a track with decent traction. Wear from F/R is quite consistant, using a one-way and rear diff. This is on a V-One-R.
Hope this is of some help.
