I put new tires on the kart on Saturday and by the end of the day, they were pretty much toast. To be fair to the tires, I did about 10 sessions on them of 10-12 laps each.
A) How often do you guys change tires? (For practice? I assume most folks will put new tires on for race weekends.)
B) Would it be a feasible idea to put harder longer lasting compound tires on for practice and switch to the softies for competition? Or would that be so different handling wise that you’d essentially be learning totally different lines etc.
C) it seems that tires make peak grip for a very short period of time (10-20 laps). Is this about right? If so, on a race weekend, what’s a viable tire strategy? Do you put them on for qualifying or do you hold out for the race?
