You are correct. I find it incorrect often on all the info. My last two entries I used the Actual on site info from my accurate meter a nd Actusl track elevation.
I've seen several times the Drag times records would say I would be faster-but I don't use it-I prefer my own values so its more accurate from track to track and run to run.

Once a driver is consistent, then its mostly about DA. Anyone that runs often should get a good meter, such as one by AirSense.

Yes I hear what you Guy's are saying as Drag Times are not close at my home track (Mission Raceway Park) to our hand held DA calculator or any other one that I have looked at. But were kind of stuck with it as there no way that I'm going through all the time slips to recalculate the times to another DA provider.

I understand your stance. I wasn't asking you to recalc everyone's results.
Attached is the data still held in my meter from the post 250 for pbest as proof.

Please use whichever you must, for it would improve either way since the actual ET was lower than my last corected one.

Thanks

Can you update my time Merc? The corrected time isnt any faster if you use the middle category for Extensively Modified, My car is dead on the "Stock and Mildly Modified correction scale. Makes no sense to say the car would run no faster a 0 DA vs 768. I've thought all along that Bolt Ons Only is Mildly modified and responds much better to colder air than Extensively Modified or Supercharged? But it's still the fastest in that category even with zero correction.
