That makes sense, i would think at this time of the year gping during the hottest part of the day would be best for 60' times since the track would be hotter?

I would think it would ve diminishing returns as the track gets colder. Better air of course, but colder track, harder to launch?

I noticed they list the helmet needing to be SFI approved. How picky are they with that? My helmet it Snell/DOT approved

As the track cools the traction goes up. But it doesnt mean a cold track is a faster track. Like motor temp it all plays part into how you setup the car.
