    Interesting stuff.
    I have their sibbling tyre the DRC2. I've had some nerve inducing moments on track with them but put it down to track conditions (i.e. early in the day). But, once past that I found they had great drive grip (very little TC intervention) and would turn well, though I wasn't regularly into the 50's.

    K3's also always seemed to have a moment (~40degrees) where the rear moved/changed angle which was unsettling. It was probably to help me lean more but did the opposite.

    K3’s were giving me 57 deg and felt like more was possible.
    M7’s around 52 deg but then felt a bit like a cliff edge.
    M9’s no more than 46 without the rear stepping out or a horrible greasy slidey feel!
    knee down at 47, so I did feel a bit cheated..
    All track conditions dry and not cold.

The only ‘problem’ I had with the was the profile being too flat and the slower steering that resulted. But hey, they’re a road tyre! Just ordered a pair of the m9’s as all rounders. Fingers crossed!
