Moto 3 Tire Temperatures / Pressures...
« on: October 28, 2017, 05:18:44 PM »
So I have been playing around with tire pressures in an attempt to get more heat into the tires, but, it seems as though no matter what I do I don't seem to be able to get the medium front / hard rear combination to get anywhere above the 58 to 63 degree range [I might see an 80 degree temperature on a side after a long sweeping turn to that side - tire temperature is checked immediately after 15 or so laps and the inevitable crash].

Is there a primer on Moto 3 Tire Temperatures / Pressures in another thread? I did find some guidelines for Moto GP but I can't imagine they are comparable.

The reason I ask is that my best medium / hard tire lap times are only about two tenths slower than my best soft / soft lap times. The softies definitely get hot and go off after a number of laps but the medium / hard combination maintains its grip until I make a mistake or have an off lap. If my lap time is two or three seconds slower then it feels as though my grip level drops pretty significantly and it takes a couple of laps to get it back.

Run a testing session in debug mode so you can monitor the temperatures in real time. Is it the same?

What are your session air and track temperatures?

What do you mean by primer?

Will give debug mode a try.

Primer = a short informative piece of writing

Ok thanks.
Do you mean a list of ideal temperatures and pressures for the bikes like I have done in some release threads?

The Moto 3 release now holds Optimum Tyre information.

Seems the temperatures you were getting are just about right?

I ran a shortish test in debug mode, very informative. Temperatures seem to hover right around 60. I am assuming the diminishing black bars indicate how much tire life is left. I have run all of my tests at 20 degrees C but will try different temperatures in the near future.

Where would I find the Optimum Tyre Information [sometimes I am as blind as a bat].

I guess I should pay more attention to the announcements. I downloaded the bikes after I saw they had been uploaded.

Thank you.
