Every car is going to be different. I have 2* of camber in the rear so I run a rediculous amount of air pressure in the rear to try to get it to rotate.

Sunday I kept the front at 38psi through the event and the rear I set at 49 in the morning when I got to the event and never checked it again since the rear was staying behind me.

Looking at Rich's pic from the event, I could probably go 40 or a little but the car felt nice and balanced as it was. I'm still a bit upset I coned away P2. But atleast I know the time is there.

I run RE-11A's which I think have a softer sidewall than your rivals.
