Very nice Art get your shifting down and you will be one tough competitor.
Don't get hung up on the DA #s as it makes a difference but not like actual altitude changes. Many Pros that run in the 9 second range using weather stations and keeping accurate data in a single season only see like .01 for every 100ft. and only .10 mph change from density altitude changes.
Art did great and the ET is certainly inline with the actual altitude difference. The mph increase is quite high considering we've been down there on many occasions and never seen more than 2.5 mph increase and that takes in account that the DA was excellent the last time there compared to here. That's all I am saying.
All Art has to do is go to Texas and prove me wrong. Now of course he'll be cooking with the gas but I hope he runs NA a few times to see how it does. At least the weather will be remotely cool for this time of year but the humidity will probably suck ass.
And one last thing about sea level performance..................t raction.
