I dont have a whole lot of exp. with that small a tire but I am thinkingabout 14 to 16 psi is a good place to start then you will have to play with stagger and I use the right front as a fine tune to get right amount of left rear.

Try 16 RF, 14 RR, 10 LF, and 11 LR. Works pretty well on 3/8. Mite be a good start on 1/2 mile too.

we found that using a pyrometer to measure tire temps works well. dry dirt tracks are quite similar to asphalt and you can adjust the pressures according to what the tires are doing temp wise. make sure you scale the car each time you change the air pressures. your cross weight will change along with the pressures if you dont make equal changes to each corner.
