I've been running the RS3 v2 since the first shipment came to the US in STX class (RX8). Overall, its a great single tire solution. The sidewalls are just soft enough to make street use good, its extremely good in wet/cold compared to the old one (as good as Rival or Z2), and doesn't seem to be that noisy. As for autox it's quite fast but unlike the original RS3 doesn't like getting hot so I generally spray a bit prematurely, remember they work well even on first runs, to stay ahead of the heat if I know I'll do multiple runs, have a co-driver or have short time between runs at smaller local events. I just ran a set of Dunlop ZII Star Specs for the first time during this event on an MR2 Spyder and really liked them, definitely had better feel and slip angle acceptance than the regular ZII but since I didn't get to test back to back not much else I can say about it at this point. We'll run a full test for 2015 before our first Pro Solo.
