NT01 Tire Pressure Recommendations

I just purchased my first set of NT01s (275/35/18) and have an event this weekend. I'm running stock suspension on an 18x10 square set-up.

Do you have any cold and hot tire pressure recommendations for track use only?

Thanks in advance!

Agree. Cold, start @ ~31 R, 32 F, should give you about 38 Hot.

Hey guys. I started at around 32 psi cold and managed the pressures to 38 psi hot and had a blast. Stickier tires are a lot of fun. Thanks a bundle.

Good advice. 38 all around is what I aim for as well.
