A bunch of my buddies are running them on the drag strip, and some of them run them on the street. I wouldn't recommend them as a street tire though. The big problem with them is they need to be HOT to be sticky.

They actually hold up well to repeated burn offs (that's the whole point) and are fairly inexpensive. They'll take abuse that would wear out a Pilot Power in a couple of races. If you do a lot of smoke shows and don't ever ride in the rain I guess they'd be okay. But I wouldn't trust them in the twisties without some serious heating first!

One of my buddies rides a 955 Daytona. Everybody hates him. He's got a spare wheel fitted with a Shinko, so he just swaps wheels on race night. Sometimes right in front of everybody. The blank stares are priceless.
