Crashes At Phillip Island

Recommended Posts

The slicks the coaches use, it depends on the slick and its condition a little bit, and a lot on how warm the day is. Some tracks it can take a full 2 laps (or more) to get the slick up to temp. We just have to pay attention to it, and if we do, not a real problem most of the time. Cool days, or any moisture, I'm envious of the students on the Qs!

I noticed over on the tire threads that the Dunlop guy recommended a slightly higher pressure (30-32 rear/32-34 front) than I ran (29R/31F) so I might have been over heating the tires at the pace I was riding. I thought I remembered from the CSS camp at VIR that the school ran the Q3 tires at those pressures but maybe that was a different track/ambient temp?

Are those hot or cold pressures?

 

The pressures I set were cold. I never checked them again after rolling off a session. It was a 65 - 70 F day at Summit Point.
