That altitude has a HUGE impact on NA cars...if you doubt this look how strong the turbocharged cars are at things like the Pikes Peak Challenge.

Perhaps that's why airplanes that go above 20K are TURBO-props?

and yeah...high elevation is a killer on N/A and S/C cars.
It was in the day, I didn't calculate it someone at the track did, but there are calculators on the web. You take temp, altitude, humidity and BP to get the actual DA.

I don't have a calculator on my home computer but do at work, I'll post it up next week.

Jon's right the E60 M5 times I know of from LACR are 13's at 108 mph.

He definately had the power button on. I saw him at a sushi restaurant and approached him and asked him to go do some runs, he agreed and we went to the freeway. We waited for it to clear up and then pulled on the freeway and started from a dig.

e46 m3's here can't even come close, not even close.
