It depends on the tires, and track temp honestly. You must play around with it to find out what works best, especially with the traction compound you are using. I usually stick to 32-36 C, mainly to bake the tire traction in. Usually once the race starts, the tires are cold again anyway (if guys are lagging to get on the stand)

Not that I'll get to this point in racing where I'll need tire warmers, but do you use them on particularly cold days? Or is this an often used peice of equipment?

Ill especially use them on cold days, unfortunately that is rare for me. On a cold day, I try to warm them just a touch warmer than the asphalt at the time, then when the race starts, they should have maximum grip. It can be easy to warm the tires too much, then racing is miserable as the back end washes out.

I use them no matter what the conditions are. I almost always leave them set to about 120 degrees. To me, they are very useful when testing set-up changes. Without warmers you don't really know the full effect of a chassis change until the tires are at running temp. With warmers you have the tires at temp immediately. I also get the warmers on the car as soon as possible to insure that the tires and the inserts are warm all the way through. I feel this is important in case someone holds the race up, as the warmth of the inserts will keep the tire temp up longer.

i use a set of Reedy tire warmers that cost me $20 and they work GREAT. I use my charger's motor break-in function to run the tire warmers at 7 volts for whatever amount of time i set it to. Works out nice
