Hankook Ventus TD: NT-01 Fighter?

This just came across my radar screen - the fairly new Hankook Ventus TD. This is a R-compound racing tire. Available in Boxster friendly 225/45/17 and 255/40/17 sizes at $245 each (same pricing for both sizes). Rated at 80 treadwear. Seem to be expensive but no one said going fast would be cheap.

Mount a set and report back!
This is an increasingly popular tire in Australia but hard to find here in the USA. If going faster is the goal I might choose it's big brother the Z214. More grip/less $$.
