Hello,

I use Pribluda and have read the guide as to how it works but I can't get the colour of the tyre temperatures to change unless I'm sliding like a pond-skater and spinning-out the back wheels. The Readme tells me that the readings will be green when the tyre is at optiaml level of grip; surely they would be green(ish) constantly after a few laps. Is this correct or am I expecting something which will never happen? I'd love to hear your experiences with this feature so that I understand it a little better.

For some mods and cars I can set reasonable lap times while never getting close to the optimum tyre temperature, e.g. 1966 mod.

Yes the green is nice to have, but in 69X it is rarely to be seen.

much more important is to know the optimal °C and kpa(psi) for each mod front and rear tires

66s and CA66 and 68s and 67x have same values front and rear !!!
(Optimum pressure is 26 psi, and optimum temperature is 102 C )

I always setup for optimal hot pressures rather than ideal temps. This way you will always be reasonably in the zone concerning optimal grip ;)

A lot also depends on the track and your driving style.
