    lots
    well being in MD, your possibly going to one of the best tracks in the country for DA. But dont forget, its really hot out these days, and usually humidity goes up at night time, at least hear it does. And humidity is a killer on you ecu's readings.

    bigger tires also slow you down. with the mods you have, you should definitely have over a 87mph trap. should be at least a 90-91.

    my best times are in my sig. Keep in mind I have a 1st gen 3.4L 4x4 and trd package.
    I launch at 4000rpm. I lock the rear dif in 2H and heat the tires up. If I heat them up good enough I can leave at 4000rpm and not spin at all. My next mod is the URD MAF calibrator which I'm hoping will help unlock some extra horses.

    Don't worry too much man. Conditions play a HUGE roll in times. Back when I was in Vegas and N/A, my fastest E/T was only 15.2 and that was modded (CAI, Headers, Catback). Keep practicing, you'll get it. E/T is more based on driver then HP. :thumbsup:

    I was out of town for a bit, so I was too slow in answering, but you have LOTS of great info here.

    Like was said by myself and others here, lots of factors can affect your et. Do 1-2 more runs in the heat- summer then try again in the fall.
    Your et's should drop by 3/10's or so from that alone.

    Does your track do test and tunes in the morning? My best et's have always been on Sunday's test and tunes.
    Track opens at 9am and you can run at 10am. Just enough sun to make the track warm and sticky, but not hot enough to make the track temp 130+.- I'm in Fl.
    Nice sticky track with decent air emps and low wind ='s low et's.
    Have fun.
