lots-O-good stuff on here..

I suggest also..
get something to know the air changes..document the crap out it ..or pit with a buddy who does that..( as I did..I'm cheap..)

something else..using small amount of nitrous..and a timer....
I could completely compensate for the elevation and weather changes..
all I needed to know was elevation and air temp.. then dial it in to how many tenths on the timer from my documentation..and run the number..

but then nitrous is a real pita to deal with..hot weather then cold weather..heat the bottle or cool it..trying to maintain correct bottle pressure..
the bottle pressure I ran at was 875..it moved significantly less at that pressure(more stable) than at anything above or below..
so it was easier to maintain in the lanes...

Just wondering why you would not change the dial, instead of running nitrous?

I've ran allot of index stuff so with all the documentation..
it only made sense to make the car run the same all the time
instead of calculating what it might run due to weather changes...
also..nitrous made the car more consistent..since it carries some O2 it compensates some for weather changes..
once I had the car dialed in at a track..usually two passes..
I almost never had to make an adjustment unless there was a wild swing in the weather..

.

N2O is very popular around here for dial in, index racing also.
Once you get it dialed in guys swear it runs more consistent then a N/A combo on race gas.
