Hey moose i live in el paso as well! its hard to get good times here because were so high above sea level. i run 16s here in el paso and we are 3,800 ft above sea level!we got add that in our list of times because some people can run 11s in their home town but if you get this high above sea level i bet theyll run 13s.Does anyone have any information on how much the altitude will affect track times? I'm in the El Paso TX area and its pretty high altitude.
Yea that be a good thing to do before u go.you should go some time man its right off of i-10 off the clint exit.Yeah I am and no not yet I need a few things before i can go....mainly new tires and brakes lol
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.I've always wondered what has more effect more, density or altitude...? If I had to guess I'd say altitude is more of a factor than temperature (because it varies so much more). Altitude can vary by hugely greater percent than the temperature does...
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.
Nice! what times did run at sea level the other night..lol wow that is a huge difference.
I'm going to the track tonight with my buddy (RT) he'll probably run mid 14's and I'll probably run high 15's. It's about 70's-80's out but again at sea level.
youve been in el paso chefred? yea man its horrible here and ive havent gotten to run in thre summer yet but it does get well over the hundreds here.so if i run 13s or at least a high 12s then my truck well be considered really fast ha.el paso is one of the worst places for drag racin..heat and altitude...use dragtimes to see what you would run at my local track (30 ft above sea level...)
Two runs at 16.1Nice! what times did run at sea level the other night..
if you run 13's yes, your truck would be really fast!!Nice! what times did run at sea level the other night..
