I run 40 psi.

It's been proven that lowering pressure in stock tires offers no benefit what so ever, unless bad wear is a benefit.

yeah, like 10PSI lower than normal i guess....

My dad always lowers his tire press. in the stang....to like 12 or 18 in the rear for Drag radials.....

and lowering PSI helps to lessen tire spin.......

Keywords being Drag Radials. Slicks and Drag Radials you can, street tires no.

oh, I know they suck......I am just afraid of breaking my car.....I DON"T need to destroyu something on my car 100+ miles away from the base.....THAT would NOT be good........

I will just let the clutch out smoothly, and not just let it go as much, or as quick, next time.....
