Yeah it sucked pretty bad. I started doing some research myself on the web on drag racing and weather conditions, I found that the barometric pressure has the most effect on racing, followed by temp and then huidity. Hard core bracket racers actually buy "weather stations" small electronic devices that mesure all of these factors and more to determine what their car will run on a specific day in specific weather. I was just realy pissed that my car ran that slow. I'm def waiting till it gets cold out to run my car again. It's just pointless to tryand get into the 12's when its this damn hot and humid out.
^lol... Any improvement is better than none. But my Jetta runs 14.0's maybe 13.9's at it's best... WtF? Definately something up...
You think 90 degrees is heat? ! I live in 100 degree weather daily lol! I think a few weeks ago it hit 110+... Yeah, my car didn't really like that. (omega intake manifold heat-soak.) It's actually cooled down to 89 today and holy moly it's cold! It's supposed to get back into the normal triple digits this weekend though. I need to wait for a cooler day to head back up to the track for some more time's.... Maybe in like October or November it'll get better.
