I would disagree
I have been running Re-71's on the track all last season and this season as well and have not felt them greesy at all.

What tire pressure were you running? I generally aim for 31/30 hot

Can't really know what R-S4's are like as there have not been any real testing done, at least that I can find. 1 or 2 reviews and they have been very positive

To my knowledge, Rivals are designed as an AX tire, at least the Rival S

I would say that at least at our PCA track events probably around 75% of the people run Re-71s if they are not running Hoosers
