I had a very good night at zMax tonight. :zmonkey:

My R/T's were spot on and helped me immensely.

I beat two 5.0 Coyote Mustangs one black and one grabber blue, a white Camaro SS, a Mustang Bullitt, and a Grey Mustang LX 5.0 :D

I've got video of every run and I'll be sorting through them in the next few days. Stay tuned for the amazing video of these great runs!

My best race of the night was beating this black Mustang 5.0 with an .016 RT. (My personal best R/T ever!)





Beating a Grabber Blue Mustang 5.0 / Beating a Red Trans AM or older Camaro

...


Beating a White Camaro with my best time of the night.

I think it was an SS edition. The car was so new it had a Temp tag on it.

Good job Ron

Not bad at all for the temps. I'm sure it probably got quicker later on unless traction went away.

Thats a good first outing of the year for you!!!!

Ok, it was cooler than the 80° to 85° that I estimated ... at least after 7 PM.

It was actually between 80° and 82° from 5:00 until 7:00 PM then the temps dropped dramatically down to 68° at 9 PM.

DA's ranged from 2251' at 5 PM to 2139' at 7 PM then dropped to 1397' at 9 PM.

Hence the corrosponding drop in my times after 8 PM.

About what I figured looking at the numbers.

The track elevation there is similiar to Mason Dixon I believe and generally in the afternoon up here in August you are looking at 2300- 2800 ft elevation generally.

The numbers correspond accordingly. Its great to note what temps and elevation do to E.T. time as it changes.

Still good numbers in the conditions.
