I think traction compound that is being used might have something to do with how the tires hook up. Please include that when you let us know which tires work best for you.
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I post just to look at my avatar.

Wooo that's cold racing! For 40F I'd say go softer, Our track during the summer on 70F days runs Sorex 28s mostly.

When running that cold, do you have parts breaking issues? I'm guessing you can gear to the moon though!

maybe at 40*C, not 40*f at 40*f, 28's, maybe 24s. on the 24s youd have to watch out for overheating towards the end of the run however

out in socal sorex 36r's with thin firm inserts are prob the most common. when it gets cold out people typ turn to rp30r's or rp32r's. occasionally i hear of people running cs27's in the more fridged temps (ie 50-60F)
