Re: my first ever track day...!!!
Ok, well if you are serious about track riding, here is what you need to do.
Things you will need:
A good tire pressure gauge
Set your cold pressures to your normal starting point. Have your friend wait on hot pit with the tire pressure gauge, and go out for a session, after like 4 hot laps, come onto hot pit, and immediately have your friend check your tire pressures. You should see like a 3-5psi increase. If you see more than that, you are running too low of a pressure. If you see less than that you either aren't running fast enough to get heat into the tires, or your starting pressure is too high.
Hope that helps, and gets you started in the right direction.
Used to race, used to be fast, won a few championships.
