Default Tire pressure

Hello folks,

Did anyone of you notice the extremely high tire pressure that DC recommends on the side of the car....its like 38 or so...
Is this normal?

Yes, it's normal. I run 43 psi in front and 40 psi in the rear tires to obtain the best possible handling/profile, IMHO. [8)]

if you plan on doing any sort of straight track event, this recommended pressure is way to high...I'm sure everyone has their preference but i vary between high 20's and 30 psi in the front for dragging at the track... For day to day i try to keep it around 35 psi. If the tires are too full they have a risk of being damaged by pot holes, of which there are many in my area
My Cruiser is slow. I love the law.
