Hey - I NEED some help from anyone that knows! I asked before but didn't get any responses - does anyone know what proper tire inflation should be for driving school and autocrossing?
Thanks in advance for any help offered!
You'll probably want to use different pressures for autocrosses versus driving schools (tracks). It also will depend on the tires. When I ran my car at Buttonwillow Raceway I used 37 front and 34 rear (cold). Seemed to be ok but I didn't spend too much time trying different pressures.
For autocross, because the tires don't really have a chance to get hot, I'd start about 3 pounds higher.
Remember, to reduce understeer, raise the front or lower the rear pressures. I doubt you'll have to contend with oversteer.
