Scrubbing in new tires?

How long do you scrub in brand new race rubber before going 100%? I always hated changing tires inbetween races because I couldn't get in a practice session to break in tires, and I never have confidence in them until the 3rd lap or so. But fast guys seem to change em almost every race... so is 1 warm up lap enough to scrub them in and get rid of any greasy stuff on them?

Get a set of brand new tires. Put your tire warmers on them until your rims are warm to the touch. Go out on your warm up lap and ride it at about 80%. Go 100% when the green drops.

The chinaman is not the issue here, Dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.
