I'll get back to a comparison in the dead of summer.
    Does the s3 seem to grip a little better in the loose stuff. ie dirty road. S7 seem to break loose to easy guess it could be the condition I'm driving in. Same weather here as what you have mid 50's partly cloudy. I have to ease in the throttle but once it gets going it's all good. Wonder if the tires with some sort of thread has better traction.

    I'd say the grooved tire is better in 'dirty' conditions vs the slick. They still need heat in them to stick. Once they warm they are stickies. Picking up pebbles like race tires on 1:1's do...
