Since tires are so important, do you guys ever use a pyrometer? I know most dirt guys don’t mess with them in cars because the tires cool to quick on the cool track, but in asphalt tire temps are paramount.
We use it during tire testing.
Occasionally I would use a temp gun rather than the pyrometer out of convenience.
Nitrogen on pavement. Nitrogen on our dirt tires, but I wasn't as concerned about vacuuming the air from them - just deflate as best as possible and inflate with nitrogen. I feel that the advantage of nitrogen is much better seen on pavement than on dirt.
