I run direzza's at 29-31 hot. 35 is too high for a proper track tyre

But they have a hard side wall, where as the Trofeo are more like the Cup 2 I thought.

Always best speaking to the people who make it. Glad I did on the Cup 2's!

Yes fair point, the side wall Trofeo is softer than the direzza but not massively imo

Maybe worth asking then. As I always ran my Trofeo at 33-34 on the Exige, and wore perfectly. But a lot lighter car as well!

Yes, I don't think the 1500+ KG help with the soft side wall. I just need more negative camber. 30psi hot seems ideal tbh after the testing i've done.

As for the lap of the ring, here it is...

I would embed it but it seems to not be working...
