I'm trying to do a race setup for Ocsherleben is it the higher the tyre pressure the hotter the middle part of the tyre gets (vise versa).
Does anybody change there brake bias in the race.
My tres get naked after 11 laps what could i do to make sure my tyres dont get shagged

The best what you can do is to optimize the temperatures, 10 C difference from outside to inside, and the middle right in between at 5 C lower the the inside. All this temps should be at the end of the race distance.
Also the front toe in, if you have it on extreme high level (-1.00 for example... lol) it eats the tyre more, and also the driving, if you slide around, it eats also the tyres.

For brakes I just try and find the best postioning for the whole of the track.

using this fumula:

Front wheels lock first while braking (Tendency for the car to go straight off track) - Adjust bias towards rear

Rear wheels lock first while braking (Tendency for the car to spin) - Adjust bias towards front

Front wheels and rear wheels lock at the same time - leave well alone
