Just wanting to hear what everyone runs? I push the Right front up sometimes to get wedge in the car....around 20lbs. How much do you run?

I think there are allot of ways to adjust the car, air pressure is one. I like to maintain a consistant tire pressure on dirt, using bleeders on the rear and keeping the pressures the same at all times with the exception of dropping the pressure when the track is still a little slimmy, which happens in the spring and fall allot. I keep my right rear at 14#, that is the most pressure I run in any tire. When we ran pavement we used air to change the set up, but not on dirt, not that it won't work, just not the way I like to do it. The September issue of Stock Car has an article on Tire Pressures if anyone is interested.

I run 12 psi on the right side and 8 on the left. This seems to work pretty well, but we're still dialing in the car.

15lbs is the highest I run in the rf. I was wondering what is the lowest pressure someone has safely ran in the rf without rolling it off.

The lowest ive ran on the RF was 10lbs. We use the real wheels that have the big bead. At ten pounds the wheel was starting to dig into the track so we bumped it back up. One things for sure, you wont have a push!

I always run 15rf 14rr and 10 on both left tires. I always noticed when the track was dry and hard my temperetures would be cooler in the middle if I ran less than 10. This is with American Racers.

we run on most tracks around here 10lbs, on occasion we will run 9lbs but only on a very smooth, dry slick track.
