8JP softer compound, wear faster but seem to be 2-3 mph.l faster.

8DN harder compound, built like Iron. Slower.

Tested both on my machine found the 8JP to work better 1200 miles on OEM belt now.

On my viper I ran both and found the 8dn more consistent in performance but a few MPH slower.

I switched over to the 8DN after about 100 miles with an osp secondary adjuster. I liked the performance of the 8JP better and will be putting it back on now that I'm reading more and more people having no problems with it.
