Impressive for a stock 4 door. Nice run! What gears do you have?

You cannot correct an ET for DA.
You can add a correction factor on a dyno for DA but on the track you run what you run...period.

3.55 gears. Where did you come up with that? Theres full weather websites totaly devoted to track weather and correction time. Thats like tellin me ur truck gonna run the same time in 40 degree 0humidity as it will 100 degree 100% humidty! Or itll run same time 10000 ft elev as it will at sea level....

Any way yea im pretty happy with it for bone stock. Esp considering guy with a 2012 rcsb hemi on 17s n exhaust only ran a 15.3 same pass as me

Not trying to say that i ran a 14.7.the corrected time would be if it had been perfect weather. Dyno da must not work either then. If ur vehicle made say 400 hp n correction is 415 that means that in 100% perfect weather ur vehicle woulda made 415 not that it actuall made 415 at that time

Where do I come up with that?
26 years of competitive drag racing...that's where.

Take your "corrected" et and combine it with a slick track and tell me how you're gonna run that number?
You're not....
You race the track your on and the weather conditions you are dealt....you can't arbitrarily say it'll run xx.xx if the weather is better. There are WAY more variables in drag racing than you're considering.

Figure this one out with your corrected numbers. I helped build a 7.3 diesel truck, we live at sea level and race there....truck ran consistent 11.30's. We went up to Bandimere for a race, the density altitude that day was 18,000'+....we ran an 11.10 and picked up about 6 mph.
Corrected ET's are bs....

Corrected times are not bill shit , during the summer in about 3500 da I run around 8.75 to 8.80's, went to dragtimes.com and corrected them to sea level and all turned out to low and mid 8.50's, went and ran a 8.57 in 200 da last weekend, corrected times almost always show close to accurate times on NA vehicles at sea level, has always worked for me

It is bullshit. If you run an 8.80 you can't say "we'll this computer says I really run 8.50's"
You ran a damn 8.80 that day.
If we run a 3.90 we can't say well...in better air it wouldda been a 3.80 so write that down instead....it just doesn't work that way in real world competition. You run what you run....it's not open to negotiation.
