Scuffing is essential for maintaining longevity and consistency of grip level for a new set of race tires. Think of it as breaking a new engine in on a car or breaking in brakes. To scuff a set of tires, start by taking one or two moderately paced laps to gradually bring up the tires to operating temperature. Then run the tires for one hard lap followed up a cool down lap. Optimally you would want to stop and remove the tires and allow them to cool to ambient temperature before running them again. When running an entire session, you will gain better results from running a lap in the middle at a slower pace to allow tires to cool before running a hard lap again.
