Tire Pressures

Postby funkychicken » Mon Jun 05, 2017 3:40 pm

Don't care about all the different tires and crap that other people want, but is there any way we could get tire pressure in the game? I don't know how effective they would be or how it would work but it would be cool.

In that case we'd also need bike damage and/or punctures in the game otherwise there'd be no reason to run anything but the softest setting right?

I mean there would be a reason. What about sand tracks? you need to lower the pressure for better traction on sand tracks and you'd need to change it for hard pack and all of them?

Why would you want more tire pressure on hardpack?
The softest setting would always be superior

Unless your rims could be split into 2 pieces or you fall off the bike easier.

Yeah exactly that's why I said we'd need bike damage or punctures in the game for this to make any difference ;)

Doesn't less pressure mean more resistance?

Less pressure = more traction and more resistance.
High pressure = less traction and less resistance.

Matter of what you like the most. Will obviously change every track and IMO is a cool thing to have.

In roadracing that might apply but I doubt roll resistance is a thing in motocross :P.

At least I've never seen it that way. Always experimented with as low pressure as we dared for maximum grip.

Have you ever ridden with a flat front? That'll get you hooked up in the corners. :lol:

From what I understand, MXS traction is handled in a way that makes tire pressure adjustment irrelevant — we basically define properties of how the tire interacts with the dirt rather than properties of the dirt itself. It would be a super cool adjustment to have, though.
