Ooof....

Tough question to answer because I tend to start with a baseline of 32 PSI front and rear and adjust based on the course.

Of course, sometimes, I can tell based on the layout if I am going to need more lateral grip (increase PSI on all 4) or more rotation (increase PSI rear only).

That said, I would not go below 30 PSI in the front or any higher than 36 in the rear.
