anyone had any experiences with this tire? How do you like them?
Except RE01-R isn't racing compound. Same UTQC rating, and they're actually cheaper on Tirerack. If you can get RE050 for $270 by all means get those instead, but otherwise if you're paying normal prices for RE050 then the RE01-R is a no-brainer. Similar tread wear, superior handling.A full set is definately worth it for $270. I don't think comparing them to a racing compound tire is a fair comparison at all.
