    Today i got my first PI 1/4mile runs in and man was it hot, it was in the upper 80s with around 90% humidity, so not the best for drag racing. I have done 1/8th mile before and my best previous 1/8th was a 9.0. Today was just too hot to get any good runs in, ill post my three best.

    3rd Best

    60' ... 2.190
    330 ... 6.139
    1/8 ... 9.313
    MPH ... 78.01
    1000 ... 12.032
    1/4 ... 14.331
    MPH ... 100.14

    2nd Best

    60' ... 2.127
    330 ... 6.076
    1/8 ... 9.258
    MPH ... 77.89
    1000 ... 12.002
    1/4 ... 14.310
    MPH ... 99.72

    Best

    60' ... 2.230
    330 ... 6.131
    1/8 ... 9.288
    MPH ... 78.28
    1000 ... 12.013
    1/4 ... 14.306
    MPH ... 100.17

    I ran 12 times and tried launching a bunch of different ways but i couldnt get my 60' down to the 2.0 that i had last time. I know the cars got 13s in it easy just gotta wait for the right weather.

    Other Mustangs
    1996 Mustang Cobra - Flowmaster catback: 14.430 at 99.83
    1994-95 Mustang GT - Rebuild 5.0 with full exhuast and cam: 14.654 at 99.37
    2001 Mustang Cobra - Flowmaster catback, CAI, Short Throw: 13.66 at 104

    I need to get back to the track with my new X-pipe. I bet I could pull off some 14.3s with my pushrod anchor. :)

    I think there is some kind of mathematical conversion chart to adjust your 1/4 and 1/8 times for 70 degree weather with 50% humidity, Car and Driver does it, there's always some kind of special little note that says (times adjusted for standard conditions) or something like that. See if you can find it, I'd be interested to see what you're really onto.

    here's a conversion calculator, you just have to find out what the weather was the day you raced.

    Well i did that little conversion calculator and at 90% humidity and 90degrees the corrected time is 13.83 at 103.62mph. I dont think id trap that high but i still think i can run 13s. My friends TAs best time the other day was a 13.79 at 100.5 and his best in better conditions is 13.4 at 101, and with the conversion on his time it came up as a 13.3 at 103, so not to far off. Still cool.
