I’m going to be taking my truck for laps on an ice racing track (the frozen lake in Georgetown, CO if you’re familiar) and am wondering if anyone has experience or suggestions for how to set it up. Tire pressure? 4 High or auto? Lockers? Drive mode? when in doubt, flat out? Etc.

I’ll be on stock tires so it’ll definitely be squirrely. I have autocross and track experience as well as dirt track racing, so I’m at least familiar with some fundamentals, but ice is new for me. Lastly it’s for fun, I’m not looking to keep up with the Audi’s on studs.

I'd definitely run air pressure at mid to upper 20s. 4x4, but auto may be more of a challenge depending upon ice surface.... smooth, rough, snow packed.

You can't run lockers or you'll never make a corner without tearing shit up.

You could always chain up, but your speed will be limited to whatever manufacturer says.

You get going 50 mph+ and drift into hard packed snow, you can roll it. Seen it done! I'd probably wear a helmet!

Tires will make the biggest difference. Good luck on stock.

@Ahaze I seen the track last year and thought "that would be fun" lol. Let me know how it goes if you do it here soon. I'll give it a go too
