I ran 10 times at Beech Bend in Bowling Green, Ky this past Tuesday (06-08-10). The temperatures were in the mid to high eighties with the humidity in the 50% range and managed a best of a 12.936 at 110.89.

The car is an all stock ls3.

I have attached my time slip for this run.

I beat on it pretty good that day to get that time. I would let it cool down for about an hour and then run two back to back runs and the second run was the quicker almost everytime.

You guys are still running good times. How many tenths have you lost since the cooler weather?

See my car ran 8.56 in 1/8 in the heat. I wonder if mine would pick up a .1 or .2 tenths in the 1/8 with cooler weather
