I know this has been covered a lot but I need some input on what air pressures to run. The car has never been run before. Tires are hoosier asphalt take-offs, 27x13.5, with no beadlocks on bart wheels. Car weighs 3200 lbs and the track is dry-slick during both the heat laps and the feature. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try finding a basic pressure, and then modify it as you need to, you will find the right pressures just by doing a little trial and error. It has been slowly but surely working for us. Good luck

Try LF:11 RF:15 LR:11 RR:12 Give or take a pound. I've run 9 everywhere but the right front before. But I usually don't like to run that low.
