Does anyone keep a race log?
I have been keeping one ever since I put the Auto back in.
I keep records of the times (60' etc...), weather conditions, mods and weight and any other notes on the sides.
It's interesting to see the progression and also to track the improvements.
ie: I can tell that the DA has a huge factor. Also I can tell that the 4.10s did help it's just that other things changed that can affect the times.
For instance. All my 7.30s have been with avg. 1.60 60's but in low DA or - DA weather. (3390lb weight)
When I went to Denton w/ the 3.73s I was running 7.40s with similar 60's but the weather was +1500. (3390lbs)
Went to Kennedale last Fri and ran in the .30s again with worse 60's (1.61s all night.) but it was done in +1400 DA and at 3445lbs.
So instead of getting bummed out, you compare. I recommend doing it.
