    Default texas vs california E.T.'s

    the guys here swear when i bring The Pearl back I'll lose a 1/2 second.. they think Ill be running 8.70's vs the 8.20's in bakersfield..
    can some of you guys shed light on the weather conditions in cali vs texas.. I know BP should have something to say on this one. lets compare May, for weather conditions.

    Im with Piston.

    I ran high 7.40s with my PGF at Chowchilla then went straight to Waco and ran 7.67 but only made one pass. Then went to Chouteau and ran 7.59. Then went to Marble Falls and ran 7.57. You can expect to lose 2 tenths for sure but .5? Make some money on the deal!!

    Default Texas

    It really depends which Texas track your talking about. Middle of the state & east no worries....now west Texas is like another country when it comes to adjusted altitude.

    i'd tend agree with this. but if the comparison is rob, he's run 8.20s or so in november at ming. from what i remember, chow was always in june/july, not quite the same air as ming in november.

    rob, it really depends where you go. like patty said, if you were to go to san angelo or lubbock, you could be down more than .3 because they have no air to breath at either of those places. either way, you'll be faced with a learning curve because tuning the engine or hardware back there is different than ming, no matter where it is. water back there is way warm compared to ming (80-85 vs mid 50s), and the air can fake you out. all the years running marble falls, i'd plan on .3 and toss a completely different setup at it before i left, and then fine tune it from there. a setup that, if i tried to run it at ming (and i have), it'll toss the whole boat out of the water at 1000'. if you get it setup and tuned correctly for the conditions, i'd expect it to lose somewhere between .2 to .3. nowhere near .5. but the conditions can go from sorta bad to real ugly at different places back there, no matter which track it is.

    in any event, what races/class would you be trying to run back there???

    I bed "bad" air affects the boat areo, not only the HP the motor makes. Just like a baseball goes farther in some air conditions. The way the air packs under the hill and goes around the boat.
