Are these things dramatically different than street tires??

Just wondering if the difference is night and day or what. I'm thinking the c5 would be almost spooky if it actually grabbed when I hit the gas from a stand still.

Way less tread, and tread depth. This gives you more of a contact patch than a standard tread tire. More contact patch = more traction.
The difference is night and day, yes.
The down side is if you get caught in any kind of rain, you'll be squirelling all over the road.

Softer compound so tread life very short and there's a useful no. of heat cycles they will give you at the strip
