GEN2s at Raptoberfest were running 25 but be aware of corners and try not to power drive it into it otherwise you will take off a bead. Several folks did.

NitroFill Nitrogen Tire Inflation
Nitrogen - being a gas as present in a tire (or atmosphere, for that matter at ~79% of what we breathe) is still subject to gas-law behavior, regardless of marketing gimmicks and claims. It will increase in volume if it gets hot, and decrease in volume if it cools. In a confined space/fixed volume, that translates to a pressure increase and pressure decrease on heating/cooling.
