Pirelli Diablo? good track day tire?

i've been using dunlop Q2s for my bike, mix of track days and street riding and been very happy with them, but i need a new rear tire. i was looking around for a good deal on a Q2 and came across a good deal on pirelli diablos, cycle gear has them for $190 a set. is the perelli diablo as good a tire as the dunlop Q2? will it fare well on the track? i ride at fast B group pace and hoping to get bumped to I group on my next track day, so i'll need a tire that works well for that pace.

Thanks for any help.

Pirelli Diablo you will probably find has less performance on the track than the Q2's, however Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa are apparently just awesome. I have many track buddies that use these on their track bikes and love them.

I have never rode with anybody on track that just has the Diablo, which tells you something. They really aren't even sold by Pirelli as street/track tires, more aggressive street.

Personally, I use the Q2 for my bike which does double duty (track/street)
