So I finally got a new set of MG yellows to run in the last road course race of the season. This is my first set of MGs. Is there a certain break-in procedure to follow to get the maximum LIFE from the tires?
You’ll notice a little < on the side wall. We run them in that direction, but I’ve also heard from a reputable source that that’s BS. We do it anyway.
On a HOT day, you can cook them in one round of practice. What we do is run old tires until the last practice session, them run the new ones for a few laps and let them cool. If you’re talking about Summit this weekend, you don’t have to worry about over heating them!!! To say the least. Just run them. They’ll be fine. Just don’t kill them in the first round of practice.
I found out after my last race that I had my rear YLC tires on backwards from what the arrows say and all I can say is that the traction was perfect and I actually might try it again being the kart ran so well!
