I use regular air. Unfortunately Nitrogen is not easily available at the track and changing tire pressure is a must.

I've been running about the same ratio for years and never had a problem. I used to pay for it and then decided to get my own compressor. I use a special "family secret" recipe. If anyone wants to know the secret, send me a PM and I'll share
