What is the recommended front tire temperature range. The front was above 90 degrees on the sides and 100 in the middle within a four or five laps. The rear was staying between 55 and 65 degrees. I was lapping in the 1:39 range at Cheste which qualifies as slug like so I was a bit surprised to see such high temps on the front. I did not mess with any suspension settings or tire pressures nor was I braking all that hard.

80 its the optimal for both but these tires can works well also with higher or lower temp because have a lot of grip. (10-15 degree are not a issue) I did now 2-3 fast laps in Jerez (1:38) and I have 75 rear and about 70 on front. with default setting. It depends a lot for from riding style.

1:39 to Cheste it is a little bit slow (I see Wimp do 1:28 with the old 1.2b) maybe you dont push too much on the rear. I know u use the 1st view so its normal have higher laps time, but the bike is tested with qually laps for understand the limit of the bike.

For sure in different tracks need change a bit pressure and setup.

I will test at Jerez this evening and see what kind of temperatures I get.

Ah default the bike has (my forgetfulness) 18mm front Lev, try 20mm for a better feeling and in theory it could help you warm up the front a little less.  ;)

My two cents: the bike feels quite "itchy" under braking, almost wobbling on the front tire so to speak. Interestingly, I get this behaviour with each of the three front brake leverage settings.

I have to say that the bike feels a little nervous also when putting the power down, but this is an old fixation of mine, so I'm not sure if this is the bike or just my riding style.

In any case, I really appreciate the effort, keep up the good work!

For the front I can't do so much, because its a issue of this beta 14. Bikes with more kg have less this issue but there is.

In the next beta the work will be a full rework. Because this bike was for a old beta (very different) so also if I change a lot of things, can't be Perfect.
