    I have a tire question.

    For Evinco Blues on an LO206 Kart, is there a guideline for how many heat cycles the tires can endure before they drop off in performance?

    For practicing, is it better to do more laps in a session, to reduce heat cycles, than to do many sessions with fewer laps?

    Generally, all tires will drop off after the first heat cycle and for every heat cycle after. Some more than others. I don’t have experience with the Evinco Blues but even tires on the harder end of the spectrum tend to lose a bit of performance after the first heat cycle.
