    advice please

    Monza GT3 driving porsche 6 laps
    tyre wear authentic
    hard tyres, no wear it seems though they are just below 100 degrees temp.
    Brakes are well ventilated 60% front 40% rear, bias is 50:50
    they are colder at the front being a dark green as opposed to the light green rears

    Why is all fine for 5 laps then on lap 6 I am sliding on every corner?
    Is this tyres? Brakes? or something else.



    Any advice most appreciated.

    Your talking in a race, or during qualifying? and , your talking 100F or 100C, and is this track temperature? or tires...

    Generally speaking if the track temperature is bellow 90F, it can be challenging to keep heat in the tires. In qualifying, tires are cold at the start and would struggle on cold track to ever warm up... In qualifying, they will start out warm/hot ( around 175F ), and if the track is bellow 90F, they would drop in temperature pretty quickly unless your really driving hard on a track with fair number of corners...

    Hard to know exactly what issue your dealing with , without knowing the weather conditions ( including ambient and track temps, but also to some degree how much cloud cover there might be ).

    What is the pressure on the tires when they are heated up? You want to be around 1.8 bar (26 psi). If you're using the default setup, most of them start out with the tire pressure too high. Then when they start to warm up and the brakes start heating up the rims, the tires over-inflate and your contact patch goes to hell. So the solution is to start out with a lower pressure so that when they warm up, they're in the correct zone pressure-wise.
