Default Tire warmer temperature

Guys this is a dumb question but im really unsure, i got a trinity digital tire warmers anyway was wondering what the ideal temperature used on Sorex 28R and Sorex 24R? Im scared i might over heat them.

Should it be aroun 30Deg or something?? Any help would be appreciated.

Hiya fren.
Just a rule of thumb.
The tires temp. is always higher then the track surface temp.

I am using Tamiya tire warmer and it warms out to about 55 deg C.
IMHO.
You can start experimenting from 50 deg C.

Next time you run your car a full pack at racepace, check the temp of the tyres immediately when it leaves the track. They can be pretty warm.

Then use your tyrewarmers to keep that same temp for start of your next run.

Thats about it!!!... prolly a bit warmer as they will loose some temp after you take them off.
