I imagine you were making more power in those cool temps :wink:
Could you run tire pressure on low side to compensate for traction?

Yessir she was making some torque!
And yes that’s exactly what I had to do, I dropped the pressure until the tires felt like they were grabbing. It took a couple sessions.

Ill tell ya Jim…that one hurt me to the core!
I have a track day list of things to take with me- tools, spare parts, my helmet (!) and other things. I hadn’t added the GoPro to that list and of course completely forgot it. That WILL NOT happen again! It’s now on the track day list :D
