    Default Crate 55, rr

    After seeing the 2 winners from Volusia win those short features on a 55, whats your opinion on using one on a local show? What adjustments will need to be made?

    You just have to get it up to temperature. 10-12 laps in, a harder tire is almost always faster if conditions are where you even consider running it.

    I have not been to Volusia, but from the pictures that I have seen, it looks almost round, the corners are very long. A track like this commands a looser setup than a track that is more of a paper clip type track. Loose race cars put more heat in the rr than a more balanced setup would, because a loose race car is more sideways. I would think a 55 would probably get enough abuse to come into its prime temp range on a track like Volusia.

    Its been a minute since I ran a 55. Dont they like a 150 degree and up temperature?

    What ya think about a tire warmer before hitting the track?

    I don't recall the exact range, but I'm sure 150 is within it.
