Tyre pressures?

What do people find is the best tyre pressure trade off between riding aggressively downhill and not ruining the uphills? I've been experimenting and find I need to run the back nearly double the pressure of the front to allow a decent feel, does running dramaticaly different pressures in the front and rear tyres have any negative affects on a bikes handling?

    i run 30 on the front to stop the wheel being bounced off obstacles, i run the back at 40 to give good rolling resistance and decent grip.
