Default Difference between Ride RE and REx tires

Can anybody tell me the difference between the two and their characteristics? Previously I've used RIDE RE tires and they are quite good grip, durable and cheap. I am considering changing to Sorex premounts (RIDE rims seem to crack fairly easily) but saw these Ride REx tires, but am hoping whether someone can tell me what the difference is.

Thanks

REx are a smaller sidewall, so they have less tyre flex.
The normal Re tyres tend to be more forgiving in rotation and you can feel it before they loose bite, the REx are very direct and dont give as much feel on the limit.

At our club the go to tyre is the Re32 blues, i ran the REx 30's a few weeks ago as comparison, and could not get them to go any quicker and wore out at 3 times the rate, i only got 4 runs before they ran out of rubber.
