aslcbr600 Posted April 19, 2013 Report Share Posted April 19, 2013 I haven't seen anything like this posted so figured I would throw this up on the threads and see what questions/ answers we can all come up with. So you have two different temperatures, ambient temp and track temp. 1. At what point is either the ambient temp and track temp too cold/ too hot for maintaining grip? 2. What tire compound would be most preferred in these conditions if the track isn't wet? 3. What changes would need to be made in how you ride the bike around the track? Ex. slower turn in instead of harder quick flicks, braking earlier then normal. 4. How do tires wear vs cold conditions and hot conditions? I will pitch my thoughts on some of these: 1. not sure. 2. I would assume soft compound for cold and harder compound for hot. 3. In cold conditions I would think it's a little like rain where you are more smooth and technical vs aggressive around the track. 4. In cold conditions the tires wouldn't wear as much but rubber quality wouldn't last as long. Hot conditions the tire would wear faster but the compound could get too hot and start to lose grip. These are just my thoughts and answers, curious to see what everyone else comes up with! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
