Hi Darren.........don't know about a Super Six,  but I run my Cat E1 at about 18psi all round for the tyre pressures. I also don't have much self centring on my steering. From the posts I've read on here, it's quite a common problem..........not sure if there's a cure for it, or if you just have to live with it!

I've got 16" wheels on mine running 195/45 tyres all round, but like I said it's a different car than yours. I searched on this forum to find what pressures to run......most seem to run them quite low. I tried mine at various pressures and decided that 18psi seemed to be the best compromise between comfort and handling.............not that you have much comfort in this style of car!!!!!!

I run mine 18-20 psi front and 16-18 rear. It's pretty easy to experiment. Do what feels right.

Hi
The self centreing has more to do with castor than the settings you have mentioned. Alot of 7 type cars have issues when tested at IVA due to this but do you want it to go where you have pointed it or where it goes automatically ?.
Not sure about a Sixs suspension make up but these cars will very rarely feel like a "normal car" but that is the fun.
In general you will get much more feedback from the car but ignore what it is telling you at your peril.
Im sure if you ring Paul at Tiger he will tell you what it should be then you just need to do some measuring to check it.
