I gotta take out that speaker box, go out there with less than a 1/4 tank, see if I can remove some other weight, and work on that launch.

That 60ft time HAS to come down!

Good times!!!

it was also 91 degrees on the first run.

it was hotter than hell on the track. wait till the temps come down a bit and the times will drop dramatically.

Density Altitude tells you if the cars were running slower or faster based on the Ambient conditions(temperature, humidity, etc.) so if the track is 600 feet above sea level, but it is 100 degrees and 100 percent humidity, you are basically running the cars down the track on top of a mountain if you catch my drift(meaning the times will be slower because of the weather). The higher the altitude, the less oxygen in the air which makes the engine have less horsepower/torque. Cool videos though!

What day was it? The DA calculator tells you the DA if you give it the day and track name.

Oooooook. I gotcha now.

DA was 3259 ft.
Relative density was 90.81%

Corrected, I would have run a 13.066 @ 114.319mph

pretty cool. like how the teggy kept up. also to much wear and tear on a car for short runs. each run is like driving your car 1000 miles. No don't take that as a true fact i am just saying drag racing is tough on cars. but you guys all did good liked watching.
