Default Tyre warmer temperature?

I bought on of those fancy Trinity Tyre warmers with the digital controls..very tricky!
My question is what temperature should I set the controls to. The factory setting is 60C.
I use T/O 27's on ashfelt at night.
Will increasing the temp work better or will it damage the tyres, something like 100C.

What are the benifits, if any of going higher.

Thanks

if you make the temprature to high the tryes will over heat and they will be slippery as. just play around with tempratures till you find thr right one

In the UK most guys seem to have them around 50 degC.

If the warmers are taken off, even after a few minutes the temp will only drop to around 35degC.
