Need some help with track setup

Alright I need some I put from some of you more experienced track riders please

what tire pressures do you run? i figured 28 psi in the rear was too low for my 200 lbs.
32 worked better

When I used to autocross my Scirocco in the late 70's, I would put white shoe polish on the tires to read how much tread I was using on each run

Based on appearance and how shallow the tear is, I'd guess it's a hot tear. Try going up a couple of pounds and see if that cleans the tire up.

I had a noob moment my last track day and forgot to check my pressures until lunch. When I had my tires changed the local shop put high pressures in them 38psi. I had a pretty good morning despite the high pressures and the tires wore very nicely. Last season I ran 25psi in the rear and tore the tires up horribly. So as already stated, you are probably running too low of pressure. 38 is insanely too high since you might lose traction, but somewhere around 29-31 might be decent.
One thing is for sure, you are very consistant with your perfect markings on the tire, lol.
Bump it up and see what happens...
