For time trials or road racing I'd agree, but just for parking lot stuff, I would think you'd need to be at or around what my hot pressures are after 10-20 laps...which would be around 35 or so. I was also more referring to the difference in front vs the rear. For a road race, I generally start at around 24 in the left front and 23 for the rest of the tires. After a few hot laps, the front tires are generally only 1-2 higher than the back and it's pretty balanced. I would think that 35 in front and 31 in back would be awfully loose.tigerdrvr said:Actually, the V710 likes much less pressure than you might think.
I've settled at 29/27 to start and then bleeding back down to that level after runs. This is using 275 fronts and, of course, the 315 rears.
Others I'm running with go as low as 25 on the rears.
Unless you've done something radical to the shocks, your handling is now screwed up. You're bottoming out the shocks and have messed up the suspension geometry. I've posted on this several times.jimshepp1 said:Thanks for all the replies. FYI I lowered the car about 1" which allowed for 2.1deg camber front and 1.3 rear, with the crossweight right at 50%.
1" lowering is too much for stock shocks? Can you explain?wtknght1 said:Unless you've done something radical to the shocks, your handling is now screwed up. You're bottoming out the shocks and have messed up the suspension geometry. I've posted on this several times.
This subject was the source of a big "discussion" between Joe Aquilante and I starting as early as the Nelson Ledges Natonal (May) and ended up at last year's Run Offs. Joe was trying to tell me that my car was too low; I thought he had rocks in his head (a race car too low? can't be!).1" lowering is too much for stock shocks? Can you explain?
