I am sure there are lots of newbies running around out there during their first one or two track days / schools with WAY too high pressures (back in the day, myself included)
This past weekend I took the beginner c class and taught them. I made sure this was one of the first things I discussed with the group and it was well received. I will continue to teach the in class as I believe this is very critical of all performance driving and learning.

As far as im concerned the Hankook RS3's are better for the track than PSS. In the wet PSS are better, on the street PSS are better but for track RS3's.

The PSS are quieter and smoother and better in the wet which is why people prefer them for the streets.

The RS3's are awesome for the track but they will need to be warmed up first, unlike the PSS.

Wow, thanks for all the insight. I will definitely utilize this info for my next track weekend in September. I kept on my 19 inch pilot super sports.

You just get too much sidewall flex when you run a psi of lower than 35 in my opinion.
