I run exactly that at hot pressure. The reason behind that is because it is at operating temperatures. According to some above, I will probably be running a little higher in the front the faster I get due to harder braking and such, which is understandable.
Thanks for the tip I'll start dropping it to that pressure setting hot , do you maintain those pressure the whole day? Or just first couple of sessions
I check them after every round out to see if there is any increase or decrease in pressure from the last time out. I always do warm laps to start since I don’t have warmers nor have I run tires that needed warmers yet (not fast enough lol)

t_bare SC3 Slicks front/rear
Front 35 hot
Rear 25 Hot


I get about 2 1/2 days out of a rear with flips at JenningsGP. They sign off before the wear dots are gone.

30 psi hot for the front is low for any tire. Once you start braking harder and/or trailing deeper into turns, you'll start to understand why.

The chart above is great and is a nice starting point for most tracks.

Chirp Q3+, 32F, 28R hot.

Shamrock I have Q3+ on mine right now. Haven't been to the track with them, but they feel better than Q3.

I am a big proponent of the Q3. I am a front-pack B or rear-group A rider and the Q3s still work well for me. The rear will spin and the front will lock up a bit if I’m trying to keep up with guys on Supercorsas or slicks, but they get up to temp quickly, the edge grip is pretty good and the feedback is great. My next step will be GP-As.

I have never used Supercorsas but I have heard that they’re all grip until there is none. The Q3 is not as sticky, but when it slides it does so progressively. From what I’ve heard, it’s a lot easier to regain control of than the SCs. I haven’t tried the Plus yet but will give those a shot next.

As others have said, stickier tires can mask mistakes and end up getting you into trouble down the road. I think Q3s are a good place for a new track rider to start because they offer good performance, but not too much as to prevent you from learning.
Great info! Interesting that the chart provided have cold pressure recommendations, rather than hot since the temp will change as you ride and depending on the air and road temp. I’m surprised you haven’t tried supercorsa’s, it seems like everyone has tried both the Q3’s and supercorsa’s. I LOVE the supercorsa’s, but I always like to experiment with different manufacturers. I have both sets wrapped in packing blankets waiting to be put on, but this is making me want to try the Q3’s more and more.
