Our car would pick up a couple of small numbers with humidity going from 50% up to 75% . This only happened after the sun went down . We did not change anything just watched the weather station and moved the dail in based on the humidity . Making a change between rounds left to much unknown for us . Moving the dail in was easier because the amount it would pic-up was only .02-03 at the most .

How hot does it get over there when the humidity rises? We can see 95 to 110F during summer, bloody hot with high humidity,but this is our wet season, so racing is limited to street meets that time of year ,Dec to Feb, Cheers Steve

Hey Steve, I live in southern Louisiana & race along the gulf coast. We get 95 - 100 with fairly high humidity. I don't know how our humidity compares with what you get in Austrailia, but it's plenty oppressive enough for me. I have a dominator converted by Mark. What I find about e85 is it doesn't seem to like humidity. In the summer, my car will pick up at dusk when the temp drops some but the humidity hasn't come up yet. Then, once it gets dark & the humidity rises, the car goes back to where it was. The gains caused by the lower temp seems to be offset by the rising humidity. Now that the weather is cooler here, car stays the same from day to night. I run mine a little on the lean side of optimum which seemed to help with consistency & made it less sensitive to weather changes.
Hey Mark, what's goin on man. How y'all doin up there? Another summer finally over! It was actually 30 degrees here this morning. It's GREAT! ;D
