Well I went to the drag strip today. It was 82 degrees and on most of my runs the coolant temps were over 200.
This was my first time ever so I don't have anything to compare it to. On my first run I trapped 112. Then after that on a clean run without mental errors I averaged 103
I think I made 6 passes total. Would the high coolant temp cause the drop in mph?

After comparing time sheets and looking at video I think I was letting off the gas way to early. There's no finish line marker that I could see.

Depending on your tune, yes, the car can pull a set amount of timing based on ECT

Yeah, I was to impatient to let the car cool down. Even with the hood up it takes forever.

When you run and the coolant temp is above 190 you will run slower. Not 10mph slower from my experience maybe 2 or 3 mph.

I may have been letting off the gas before I the finish that's the only thing that makes sense. Going back tomorrow so we'll see
