Thanks for all the runs on Sunday. It was a challenging, yet interesting course design.

Thanks for all the hard work putting this together.

That is the reason we are out there dodging those cones, we always will find a way to improve ourselves and our cars one way or the other.

I also had a great time .....

Hah I found out I need a new tire pressure gauge...when I went to fill up my tires after my last run I had 25psi in them...not 32 like the gauge was showing. Which also explains why I couldn't get my time down after dropping my tire pressure to what I thought was ~32

I was curious to know why the lower tire pressures on Sunday improved times vs the usual higher pressures? Good layout without a doubt, was just having an off day this time around. Hopefully Tire Rack will go better for me :thumbup:

Damn Jake.

Dawid, there's a fine line with tire pressures, plus every tire is different. Add in the cars weight, setup, driving style, and the surface conditions themselves, and you've got a ton of variables. With that said, I've always had my fastest times by lowering the fronts to 31-32, and keeping the rears at 42-45psi. Even in Shelly's TT, I ended up lowering the fronts I about 31 and pumping the rears to 40-42 IIRC. But, I like a little rotation. And I tend to push the hell out of cars. If you're a smooth driver, higher pressures up front probably do work out.

....

Then You and I have the same driving style in totally different cars, last Sunday I started the day w/40PSI all arround on cold tires, but after the tires got warmer as well as the track did to, I had to drop the fronts down to 37 PSI and the rears down from 43.5 to 40PSI a pound or so at a time. In fact, the layout of the track played the main roll, it had more hard right turns than left ones the I even adventured to drop the pressure down on the rear right down to 35PSI and that did improved my times.

I spend pretty much the first hit trying to find a set up I felt confortable trought the slow part of the course and the slalom, I know I could improve alot more since I was kindda understeering on the long sweeper after the slalom heading to the tech tent, but then again, it could be just me since I'm new to all this HEHEHEHE!! :D
