I'm a veteran racer who was out of the hobby for quite a while, when pan cars ruled. Now I'm back, and I'm very new to the touring car scene. The one thing that I haven't been able to find the answers for is when to tune with your inserts.
How do you know when you need to run a firmer or softer insert, given that you're already running the "hot" tire for a particular track
? I've always been told, "Run the Pits with the Echo Blue" at this track, or "The Sorex 36R with the Yokomo Medium is the ticket". How do I know that this particular insert will work well with my chassis setup?
I asked David Spashett once on TTT, and he said that he just tries different inserts and gets a feel for what works best. Well, I respect his opinion and understand that he doesn't have a set method for determining insert selection, but I don't get my stuff for free, and I don't have an unlimited budget.
Anyone have a set method for tuning with inserts?
