Folks,

Any thoughts on hot pressure to aim for with the V730's?

About a 3000 lb car and going to Autobahn country club on Monday to run the full course.

Thanks

These tires are rather R-comp-ish in that they have very stiff sidewalls and don't need so much pressure, they seem to like hot pressures in the mid/high 20s for very lightweight cars, for a 3000lb car something in the low 30s might be a good starting point for a hot pressure. I've found 27psi recommended for an S2k.

Sounds good, thank you.

I'll aim for like 33 coming off the track. Well, as long as it stays dry that is!

Yeah I suspect 30psi hot might be close to ideal for those tires on a car of that weight, so you should try reducing pressures once you can confirm it's not rolling onto the sidewalls (and ideally confirm with tread section temperatures), but better to start out with too much pressure than too little.
