I have a question that has always got me going I am running at a new track (to me) that has a tire rule, we have to run American Racer 265-60-15,s the car weighs 3050lbs and the track is a 1/2 mile med bank clay surface our cars are stock stub, tube frame,V8 engines. My question is this what pressures should I start with?

LF 13 - 16
RF 17 - 20
LR 10 - 15
RR 10 - 15

That's about the range I use when running those tires. Although, 10 or 11 in the rear is a little dangerous without beadlocks. I rolled one off the RR at 10.5 before it had a chance to warm up.

I generally run 15 LF, 18 RF, then 12 or 14 in the rear depending on what I'm needing. 12 LR 14 RR for more loose, 14 LR 12 RR for more tight.
