It's clear Irwindale has quite a bit MORE traction than Famoso does with th ose excellent 60' and 1/8th mile ET's you got, but your Xede equipped car on 93 Octane isn't pulling as hard as the older v1.2 PROcede on 91 Octane did as the trap speeds bear that out.

That factor you use really isn't scientific enough to know what your outcome would be. There's just too many variables.
You just need to take it to a 1/4 mile track and see what you can do.
The 12.77 is just a ballpark figure. As you know we don't have any 1/4 mile tracks around that equal Irwindale's traction.

At LACR things will slow down .3-.4ths due to altitude and traction, but I think I'll be running 12.99-13.20 there. The good news is we'll have procede cars running along side so we can do a more direct comparo.
