Corrected time

I didn't want to throw this in JM or racing so why not here?

I just kinda heard about corrected time in drag racing due to altitude and weather. Sooo, do most magazines use this? Who does? Are you supposed to say that you used this "adjustment" to your time when "putting it out there" in the media?


I assume SAE smoothing when you look at a dyno sheet is similar?

It annoys me, its like that friend who always has an excuse, oh I would have beat you if we were at sea level...

My local track is at sea level so I don't have to hear that crap. Of course they still have a million excuses "the water box was too dry, I'm not used to the full tree, I'm not used to the Pro tree, the other guy took too long to stage and my tires cooled"
Sometimes wheelies happen

All that's done is to correct data to standard temp and barometric pressure in order to make an accurate comparison between vehicles or engines. It's done in dynamometer work all the time. It basically looks at air density differences.

SAE and smoothing are 2 different things. SAE refers to the variable used to calculate output and smoothing is just what it says. Smoothing out the bumps on the tracing.
