On the road in the wet they are leaps ahead of PS2 and give much more confidence.

On track the PSS are definitely softer as the wear rate is higher but a noticeable increase in grip, not cup level but not far off. It took a while to get my pressures right as they kept getting too hot but once I got that sorted they are recommended.
Were you able to measure the temp of the PSS while at the track, e.g. inner, outer, centre readings? And the effect that the tyre pressure had on these readings?
