My car has stock springs, shocks and everything. Also I don't have any toeout or in on the front tires. I run tubes and 70 series ties what pressures should I run.

LF 235/70 R15
LR 245/70 R15
RF 255/70 R15
RR 265/70 R15

Should I change the tires around? The track is a 1/4 mile High banked track.

Please help first race is saturday!

Well, I could start by saying this, do a search on the title above and look for anything related to tire pressures. I will give you my opinion about your setup. If your rules allow, get some racing shocks when you can, get springs too (if the rules state "stock appearing" then you can probably run the racing springs and shock. As far as sizes, I do better with the size around, try two front tires that are as close together in size as you can get, then run a 1-2 inch difference on the back. Use 16 or 17 Lbs in RF and RR 15 on LR and 12-15 on LF. If you do a search, you will find all kinds of info on what you are looking for.
Also, Get some offset in your rims, about 2 inch on front and RR and 4 inch on LR.
