Call me a conformist, but I'll stick with the manufacturer's recommendations over random people on the internet (and even Dave Moss) giving anecdotal evidence.

Never watched the Dave Moss videos before, but Which I've always ran the Michelins and Bridgestones at 32F 36R for fast road riding, and dropping them a little when it's hot outside like it has been lately.

26F 32R seems around the sweet spot on track too.

That's good to know mate! Thanks! I'll probably start a little higher as I'll have to use the first couple of sessions to run them in and get to know the bike a bit as it will be my first time riding it,  oh, and new brake pads too to bed in. If it's still as warm as now it should be good  :084:

Can't speak to over inflated handling issues. I check/ maintain pressure often. I would imagine it makes for a painfully hard ride over 42R 36F amongst other possible unpleasant issues for sure.
Currently running S22's. 1up riding in 3 season weather only, i have found a good compromise of performance, comfort for me on these tires is 40R 34F (cold).
