Pressure Recommendation for Tufo tubular clincher Elite C

I managed to find some used Tufo tubular/clincher tires since it seems they are NLA. I'm looking for a good starting point pressure wise to maximize my traction without having it move around. The guy I bought them from told me his pressure range was 25-35 but he weighs about the same as one of my legs (i'm 195) so I'm thinking I'll need more pressure than he did.

Depends on the course, but you can run them pretty low as you will not pinch flat them.

I might start at 40psi and work my way down
