Yeah, with only 1 track day I would stay away from the track that particular day. Some of the B group are pretty fast. Others are kinda fast. Either way you will be slow your first time to MSRH since it's considered a "technical" track.

Yeah I don't want to wait that long though, there is a track day at Elite Track Days (www.elitetrackdays.com) on the 14th I may hit that up. But they only have two groups expert and non-expert. Ever heard of them?

I did an event with them last year. Good group of people. Sign up for the non-expert group.

Street tires do not work well if they go bewond 180 degF. That can be controlled with air pressures. The lower the pressure the hotter the tire will get, too hot and the tire will get greasy. Too much pressure and the tire will not get hot enough and will lack grip. The reason you run higher pressures on the street is to preserve some form of tire life. Also, your usually not going fast enough to cause the pressures to rise enough, so the tire will feel squishy on the street with the track pressures.

So with that said, MOST street tires work well with 30 front & 29 rear cold & hot pressures will be 33-34 front & rear.
