What tire pressure do you need for the front ones and the back ones?
How full should the gas tank be?

Hey Rick!
I would start with about 40 psi front and rear. If it feels too loose, drop it down a couple of pounds. Get yourself a good tire pressure gauge... one with a dial and a short hose.

Have less than a quarter tank, any more than that and it's just extra weight.

Hey, give yourself a break, you don't write like a moron....

Though I'd tell people to show up with a half tank until they know what level of gas their car starts to starve on. I found out at a Tour Embarassed fortunately a good Samaritan loaned me his spare gallon so I didn't have to drive out to gas up and miss at least one run! And for a beginner, the extra ~6lbs/gallon is NOT going to make a difference. I just try to make sure I'm down around half or so, especially if it's an event where we could get fun runs and I'd miss out if I had to go get some more.


Paul T. Ford body, Yamaha power - describes my car pretty well, too! Smile Returned to racing the STi-STU but still that #35 you love
