Keep a log of all your runs and include 60ft times - track conditions, engine temp and DA and if you can Track Temp -
Than way you can really see what the car is doing and determine what you average times are - If you ever bracket race this is the only way to adjust your times and to make sure you are comparing apples to apples it is also the only way.
By the way much easier to do with a automatic then manual as you take the shift aspect out of the equation that is why most bracket races and dial races are won by automatic
i agree...thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts-
Just ordered a M.A.P tune today and will head back to the track to see if i can beat 12.54...then it will be Circle D time- thanks again
