    Track Day

    I'm taking my 2006 STI for it's first outing on a real track day at Sebring. The usual has been done. Hawk Plus pads, new Motul 600 brake fluid in new stainless lines, and Water Wetter. What I would like to know is what tire pressures to use? The tires are stock Potenza RE070'S. Other suggestions such as camber, caster, toe, and where can I find a 29mm front sway bar? Thanks Bill

    I don't do track days (yet) but from my experience autoxing, I would run a little less than what I run autox. So, I would start with 36 psi or so and adjust from there. If you're rolling over the sidewall, add more.

    Also a tire temp gauge/probe would be very nice to have. If you're heating the center of the tire, decrease pressure. Outside edges too hot, increase pressure.

    Have fun.

    A non-contact(infra-red beam) thermometer would probably be great for that.

    They work. A temp probe is better.
