Interesting article on traction

I thought this was cool.

http://forums.superbikeschool.com/in...?showtopic=877

I don't know that I have sufficient experience to evaluate the importance of the various points mentioned but I think after reading this I will have several of those "oh yeah!" moments as I gain more first-hand knowledge.

In any case I was fascinated and I wish I had gotten to read it before my first track day last weekend, so here it is for you all before your NEXT track day!

Thanks for the link. I found it real interesting especially the ideas presented about tire warmers and not getting the craziest racing tires you can afford until you are able to make better use of them.

Yeah, me too.

I also tend to trust the source. If I could afford the California Superbike School I would go tomorrow.

I'll have to save up for a bit though. I kind of think it's overpriced but then again I don't really know what their operating costs are.

I do believe that Keith Code is the best when it comes to instruction.

tire temp

yeah, well it seems like a lot of people buy tires for the streets, and never reach those temps on the street. my tire temps on the street run between 40- 50 C, which is still low for real grip. that last weekend in SOW, i was shredding the top layer pretty well, and it was around 75 C. when i had asked bridgestone for the BT016, they said the optimal temp for those were between 70-90C, so i'm assuming the bt003RSs that i ran were maybe 75-95 or so.
