I prfer the gators when the track has a nice grove to it, with the shorter pins the tires seem more planted than do the crimefighters. If you find your self off line more often than not I would stick with the Crimefighters.
ya i understand but thats not really what we were talking about, also im not a fan of the crimes- the pins are too tall and close together.

the k1 has less side bite so it frees up the car. you would corner better with the k2 if you then change the rear of the car. longer wheelbase,less toe. i understand the feel you have but if you give the car more bite=more steering

To me the med soft K2's feel like M2 crimes and the med soft K1's feel like bowties. They actually grip inbetween an M2 and an M3.

The Gators only feel good to me when the track is moist, if its dry they push.

Ok... not doubting your statement here... but I just like the feel with the K1 better than the others. I'm not a good enough judge of "why" it works better, just my results with that tire are generally very good. The K1 is my "I can't figure out what to use... guess I'll run these, they always seem to work" tire. Others may not like them as well.
