Regardless, the 888's are crap for DE's (or pretty much anything else).
Your source seems more reliable than mine . But based on how differently they behave, I am still sceptical the R888 and RA1 have the same compound.

As an aside, I still wonder why Toyo discontinued the RA1 to replace it with the R888 (only to bring back the RA1 after the market pleaded for it)...
