Here in FL in the summer heat when it's in the 90's or 100's we've always ran about 1 second slower than in the winter when it's in the 50's and 60's. We are basically at sea level.

Best times, though, are always on summer blend gas in spring or fall on a cold night.
yea man my engine is gasping for air here. The last time i went to the track it was at least like thirty degrees and with 3,800 ft altitude i ran a damn 16.7 @ 80mph but i did beat a mustang gt on that run.
