I think if you know your optimal range there are some cheap tpms kits that actively see temps and pressures such that you can easily dial in the fine adjustments to attain your targets during your track day, which is fun too.

This is very helpful and I love this style of delivery. 


Some of my favorite things from GRM are how to's and there are lots of great articles, but a video is much easier for me to follow as a barely literate track gorilla.
