    An IR probe measures the surface temp though. I know that changes very quickly, but the pokey probe that goes in gets a better idea of what went on all session long. Again, never checked balls hot without a cooldown lap. One of those things I always forget about and never seem to have a body around to do for me.

    I am getting comfortable with the notion that the thin to win RA1s weren't actually thin to win, rather that we were just slow.
    Like they used to say "RA1's are slow but they are slow for a really long time"

    Dude you are wasting your time probing tires or checking pressures in the pits.

    I disagree, the data isn't the same but it's still useful (mainly deltas)

    ^^^ This was mainly what I was after. Now I'm curious as to how hot I'm actually getting them.
