Heat soak was a problem for everybody, plus it was ~ 1,700 ft elevation. It was about 75-80 degress but more importantly, the black taramac was very hot (not a cloud in the sky) and the staging area was long. My meth boiled over in two runs and so didn't flow at all. Even when my meth was flowing, IAT's were still over 50c. I didn't log my run with the VT1 535 M3 (ended in a tie) but my previous run that I logged, timing (ignition correction) was reduced a lot as a result of the heat soak.

So yes, the results will be a lot worse than an evening run at sea level.
