Rational in Brainerd looks sorta wet this weekend, so wondering what people are running as hot pressures with the H20? I'm guessing 39-40 ish? Confirm? Deny? Thanks in advance!

35-37 cold, gives you 38-40 hot. Be carefull, if the track starts to dry, you will ruin the tires in a hurry.

That's kind of what I'm running RA1 in the dry: 39-40psi...
So am I doing something wrong in the dry or you're just saying that it's same pressure to shoot for dry or wet...

This issue was addressed by Hoosier. They are a little more durable than the previous HWet. You still will want to look for wet track when it starts to dry though.

Well, we got to use them in one qualifying session...incredible. Got them to 38 lbs and the grip was WAY beyond expectations. They definitely gripped much better on Brainerd's "old" asphalt (Very heavy aggregate) than they did on the "new" asphalt. We were impressed, and so was the rest of the class who qualified !! 4 !! seconds behind!!!!

On another note, we found out the new Hoosier SM6's gave up the ghost about 6 laps into the 8th heat cycle. Instantly went from 1:53's to 1:55's. You will know when it happens...
