Widest Tires Tried on a Lynskey R 260?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Widest Tires Tried on a Lynskey R 260?

I'm signed up for a 40 mile gravel race in the Adirondacks and am wondering what is the widest tire anyone on here has tried on a Lynskey R260 Disc (or even an R 250 Disc). I believe I could fit 30s comfortably and maybe 32s but not sure about knobby CX tires. The trail appears to be hard-packed and relatively wide from youtube videos I've seen, but I'm sure there are plenty of rocks and other defects. Would rather not do the trial and error approach.

The Lynskey site says max tire width is 34mm. Doable but not very fun. I would go at least 40mm on a gravel race.
