Nov 30 Test and Tune

Sat Nov 30 some friends and I are going to Cecil County Dragway in Md. If anyone is interested come on up. Looking to get a new personal best with the nice cool weather and an upgraded tune. Gate opens at 8am test and tune starts at 9 and runs until 4pm. Hope to meet some fellow forum members from Md. I'll be in a 06 Silver Gt.

I'm on the fence... it's a 2+ hour drive, and it's only going to be a high of 38 deg. I'll prob just wait until next spring (but if you see a legend lime '05 with VA tags, be sure to say hi).

Density altitude (DA) is the altitude at which the density of the International Standard Atmosphere is the same as the density of the air being evaluated. The lower the DA, the better your car will perform, you’ll have quicker ET’s and higher trap speeds. If you’ve ever wondered why cars run so much stronger at Englishtown vs Las Vegas Motor Speedway, DA is the answer. Tracks located near sea level with low temperatures, low humidity and high barometric pressure will make your car run like a champ, while tracks in the mountains with higher temperatures, high humidity and lower barometric pressure will make you think something is wrong with your car. Between the high and low DA extremes some cars can experience a 40+ horsepower gain or loss. (source)

DA calculator - hit the drop down and select the track and date for weather info where you're running.

That said, did you run yesterday - and how did you do?

Yes, I ran. Didn't go the 11.90 I wanted but plenty of consistent 12.00's.

I'm trying to understand this DA thing. Is 250 DA good?
