Post Drag racing Test and Tune

Well I doubt anyone wants to come and play but there is a Test and Tune at the local Track between deming and Las Cruces, NM on march 10th

Its $20, run all you want (20+ is usualy very easy to get), and you only need a brain bucket (helmet).

It is at 4K ft so times will be more than a bit off of your times in AZ.

Well if you want more info just ask.

We should all go out there and run, so we can post outrageous altitude corrections like I have seen on other sites

I ran a 16.x so that would be like a 12.x at sea level

Thanks for the heads up XT6.

Wow a 1.73 60' time

What were you racing, it pulled off a very nice time at a higher elevation? Let me guess it was some sort of domestic?

BTW were you asleep as the tree dropped?

Yup I was not paying attention. I reacted to the other guy leaving.

The other car was a bright orange mustang. The mustang guys sure got a kick when my car was chewing on his ass the whole run until 300ft or so before the line.

Hey Aaron,

I don't think you get an altitude adjustment with a turbo. What kind of boost controller are you using? I believe you make 1-atmosphere + 5 PSI (14.7 + 5 = 19.7 PSI absolute) regardless of altitude (within some relevant range). I'm sure this depends on exactly how the boost controller works, but I think that's one of the benefits of running a turbo.

The adjustment isn't as great but I think there is still an adjustment. If you look on some "other" sites you will see some crazy adjustments!

I would much rather see the times people actually ran and the elevation and let people make their own adjustments.
