that tire pressure trick...........

how does that work????Its something to the effect of if you increase your tire pressure in the front tires you can reduce your reaction time?? I'm thinking its like inflate them to 40psi???Some one explained it to me once but I can't remember what to do.
Thanks all,Edward/Struckby

If I recall correctly, you can minutely compensate for your r/t with messing with front tire pressure.

If you increase tire pressure, you decrease the amount of roll-out and theyby decrease you r/t.

Decreasing tire pressure has the opposite effect.

Now you can't make a .600 light a perfect .500 light with this but if you are close either way, you can fine turn the r/t to a point.
