I did not do well, but there's a reason, lol. I think Jon is being kind about my times, hehe. I've only ran at LACR after I installed the SC'r, probably the worst track in the United States, and it has since closed.
When I was NA I hit 13.6 at 100 there, a solid time for the conditions. When I was stage 1 398WHP I hit 13.2 at 108 with a pretty bad 60' and I spun the tires in 1st and 2nd gear, didn't do well ET wise, but I picked up 8MPh in my trap which is what I was hoping for. Not to make excuses, but I will anyway, lol, the car had some initial problems with the software and the rev limiter was at 7700, it is now near 8K. Since the increased rev limiter and fixes, the car has ran fantastic.
To give you an idea of how bad LACR was, the adjusted altitude was over 5000'. Again when I was NA I trapped 100 at LACR, but 108 at Sacramento, lol. An 8 MPH difference!! Turbo charged cars do not suffer as much as NA or SC'd cars at high altitude, there is no wastegate to compensate. That day at LACR a 996TT trapped 106, RS6 102, etc. AA supercharged stage 3 M3 hit 108 as well, really bad times and traps.
335I's actually did damn good, hotrod's was stock I believe and he was running with the procede cars. The Biturbo stage 3 S4's did fantastic as well, however they were trapping 6-8MPh slower than sea level as well, but at that altitude and temp, everyone was way down on power compared to sea level.
So with stage 2 now, running at Sacramento and based off the many cars I've ran, I should be in the 12.1- 12.4 area at 118, we shall see this February when I take a trip up.
