Tip of the WeeK: 5/6/2012 Temp Records

Many racers fill out setup sheets, and the info on these detailed sheets is incredibly valuable. There’s one piece of information that isn’t often included on setup sheets yet has a profound impact on setups. That item of info is the temperature. When you race, write down the temperature somewhere on your setup sheet. The temperature can have an impact on shock fluid and tire compound. A setup that was dialed in the early season, may be off in the peak of summer if you follow your setup to the proverbial letter. If you have the temp noted and know the temperature is 10 or more degrees different, you’ll know shock fluid and tire compounds may be to change. Warmer temps often require thick shock fluids and sometimes a move to a firmer tire.
