Hankook Ventus TD or Toyo Proxes RR?

Time for new track tires for the upcoming season. I was ready to order my third set of Nitto NT01s when I ran across the posts describing delamination issues of the tread. So NT01s are out for now, unfortunately.

I've narrowed it down to trying the new Hankook Ventus TD that everyone is raving about (treadwear 80) or trying the brand new Toyo Proxes RR (treadwear 40)?

Any votes or thoughts?

The Hankooks look similar to NT-01s with the large tread blocks, but they don't come in the ever popular 275/35/18 size so I couldn't go with them for my square setup.

The Toyos look like Hoosiers, probably pretty sticky, but how many heat cycles will they give you?

..still love the Nittos.
