I cannot give you suspension changes for running them, as I had put new suspenders on right before going to Conti's. I have no baseline.
I am running a Ducati 996, and am playing around in Supertwins. With the low grids, I, too, appreciate their no-minimum grid contengency.
The tires stuck well in my first race (soft/soft) and the second race, we had a distinct drop in air/track temp. I adjusted them down about 2 psi (bad move) and had the rear end walking everywhere on me in race #2. I felt like Gary McCoy sliding the rear. Although, I will tell you that the slide was super controlable, and wasn't suprising...very forgiving.
I think alot of my issue is running the soft/soft compounds period on a big bore twin. My next set, I will be going to med/med and I think the change will be better all around. I was also fighting a terrible suspension set-up, and basically had no compression damping in my front end- so this should all be taken with a grain of salt.
I have been running B-stones for the past three seasons. I think the conti's have a bit better initial stick to them vs. the stones, but until I get out there with the suspension dialed in, and on a new set, I don't think you should take this advice as official canon, ya know?!
First impression: cheaper than the rest, good stick, unreal contengency payouts.
