That is interesting, I assume both are in the same size? If we are talking autox though, its not quite the same as blasting through the canyons. RS3s have been shown to deal with heat much better than the falkens, so at an autox you won't be out there trying to spray down greasy falkens after every run.

I don't have the money to do any testing, unfortunately, so I can't tell you definitively if the RS3s would out perform Azenis at an autox.

I think you could be happy going with any of the current popular street tires though. I think that at nationals this year, RE-11s, RS3s and whatever the Toyo tire is, performed the best.
