The Wednesday drag races at Sears were a mixed bag this round. The good news is that it didn't rain. The bad news is that we had the hottest day on record in the Bay Area, and the temp at the dragstrip was 115 F. The high temperature killed performance, especially on forced-induction vehicles like mine. While a week earlier I was turning in 14.0 1/4 miles with no brake torquing or burnouts, this time the best I could muster was a 14.8. One guy with a modified 300ZX turbo reported he was down two full seconds due to the heat.
Tht said, we still had fun, and the videos are still entertaining. Just mentally subtract 1.3 seconds from the 1/4 mile times you see posted :)
