    Any recent seizures in the Pacific NorthWest? How weather effects tuning.

    According to atmospheric data recorded at a Boise Idaho raceway,
    6/29/21 @ "FireBird Raceway" the "Heat Bubble" was causing a 32%
    loss in HP today.

    That is crazy! and would easily cause a wot seizure.

    Heat wimps. Try living in 105 F temps all summer like those in the Lake Havasu area.

    When it's over 90 here, the humidity is usually hovering close to 90%. Power loss is real. 105 Dry is nothing sucka

    The lowest atmospheric pressure I have ever measured was 27.35 inHg
    in the California high desert (~Mohave). It is very possible Lake Havasu
    gets close to that while there is a high pressure area centered over the
    4 corners (Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona). Often the pressure
    in Havasu is in the low 28 inHg. Today the pressure in Havasu is 28.68 inHg,
    and 105F.

    The day I posted about the Northwest heat bubble, the recorded pressure
    was 26.99 in Boise Idaho. That is low.

    While there is a high pressure area centered over the 4 corners, a friend
    complained that his ski wasn't running right, and that only turning the hi
    speed out helped.

    It was a 4 corner heat wave in Havasu, and for a few days he was over-pitched
    and running lean.
