    Tire pressure for the track for factory tires?

    Hello fellas, taking the Atom to the track for the first time this weekend and needed some suggestions.
    I have had a couple of HPDE classes with my other vehicle, but never with the Atom. I am new to the world of motorsports and have never driven a manual on the track before... let alone a 300 hp 1,300 lb car! With that being said this will be a relatively low key experience for me and won't be pushing the Atom too hard.
    I was curious as to what suggestions you guys had for tire pressure for the front and rears.
    Any other suggestions for my first track day would be great! I just hope I do not have a heat stroke because it will be in the mid 90's wearing long sleeves with jeans and helmet of course!!!

    Hey Elon,
    Somewhere in the depths of this forum I found a setup of 13PSI in the front and 17 in the rear for Toyo R888. It has worked very well for me over the past few trackdays!

    Thanks, I did a search and what I found was just people asking about tire pressure for their wider tires. 13 PSI sounds awfully low, but I guess I am just used to 35 psi in my other vehicles that I track.
