I haven't tried the Dunlops so I can't comment on those.
I ran Bridgestone BT003 (race, not street compound) for most of the season. I was happy with them for the most part, especially the price. I ran the R10's one weekend because the tire vendor was out of the 003's and they were even nicer yet but I didn't get as good of wear out of them.
The last 2 rounds of the year though the Bridgestone vendor couldn't make it to the track due to some kind of mechanical issues with his truck. I ran Pirelli SC1's and I LOVED them compared to either of the 'Stones but especially the BT003. The one track I run is super bumpy and they soaked up the bumps sooo much better. The rear just felt planted instead of bouncing around. I had been running consistent mid 1:14's at this track and the last weekend of the year I dropped to a personal best of 1:13.3 on the Pirellis.
