Have not taken my mustang out because of school, but lets just say my 5.0 may not be fast, but its an upgrade.

But the thing is when your at a track do you really ask people what their DA correction is? Im all for comparisons and setting a basis for comparison. But their is a limit to how you can use it to judge your car...
when i'm at the track no.. not unless I was bracket racing, then i'd be watching the DA conditions..

I just compare what I run against other racers at the track.. the forums are a different ball game.

Not true at all... but you can't use it the way some people try to use it.

Post your time, post the DA and call it a day. Don't try to use it to claim what you would run if *blah blah blah*... it's a tool (just like a dyno)... it shouldn't be used for epeen action.

I will. Bringing the wife and just bought a new camera. Going down for midnight mayhem. Hope it's not too crowded.
