I normally run a 1/4- 3/8 mile dirt/clay tracks but in a couple weeks I will traveling to a 5/8 fast low banked asphalt track. I run the IMCA tracks and this is a IMCA event. Can anyone give me a (starting point) on the amount of air to run in these tires. This past week I tested on a 1/2 mile asphalt track LF,RR -12lbs, LR-10lbs and the RF-15, any thoughts?

When we ran the IMCA tires on asphalt, we ran 18-20 on right side tires and 12-15 on left side tires. If there was not enough air pressure, it would roll the tire under and eat out the sidewall (leaving you in the infield watching).
