SC1 if you like a lot of feedback on trail-braking and don't mind a little squirm under hard braking. SC2 if you like lots of stability on braking. Both have strong edge grip. Personally, I'm an SC1 guy, but we sell twice as many SC2 to SC1 fronts so I'd say I'm in the minority.

The SC3 are gaining steam now with the latest version. The rear is pretty durable, and they're good for cooler temps and don't cold-tear as easily. Outright grip is still below the SC2/SC1 level, so not many guys are racing on those, but for track day use they're becoming more popular due to the lower cost, especially the rears.
I haven't spotted these (SC3's) in Australia yet . Are they cheaper or just better value because of durability?
My conditions are mostly cool be a good option. Most go from front sc1 to an sc2 as temps pick up , but does this apply for the sc3 ?

No, I haven't , always sc1 front and sc2 rear , Does the SCX need warm- hot temps? In Tas temps are always cool (not allowed to say cold). I'm racing at the Island Aug 25th , it will be cold !

Good tyre for cold . I usually would run a SC2 on a cold day at the Island but will kill it reasonably quick the SCX is the tyre to use .
