I agree. I won't be correcting anything as it's just another element of bench racing. I'm posting what my car ran on a particular day with fuel purchased in my region. I also went to the track yesterday and here are my results;In my opinion I don't think their is any need for it to be that scientific, or to be adjusting our times.
For myself, and likely the majority of owners, they care about what they see in front of them, not something that an online calculator tells them.
If i personally went to the drag strip and ran a 13.7, i would be telling everyone i ran a 13.7, because i did. I wouldnt be telling people I ran a 14.0 after the online tool correction.
In a similar sense, you can correct his car to a 100+ MPH trap speed, but he hasn't actually done that yet.
That would be similar to putting your car on a Dyno, having it pull 230 WHP, but then going out and telling everyone the car made 250 WHP because it was a hot day when you dyno'd it, it really didnt.
Does this make sense?
Everyone lives in their own micro environment, your circle of friends likely goes to the same track as you, and the same dyno as you. So the results that happen in your own environment with your own locale and friends are really the truth in your world, not an adjusted value.

This time around, I tried a couple of different driving techniques and played around a little with tire pressure. In addition, I installed the PRL stage 1 intake while maintaining the stock tune. What I have found is the Accord would actually be a pretty good bracket racer as it's very consistent. In total, I have run my Accord down the 1/4 mile 8 times now and no matter what I changed, the car ran very consistent times within .1 seconds of each other. My second conclusion, is the stock intake is more than efficient and there is no need for an "upgrade." I ran my best time of 13.859 at 99.08 (2.256 60ft) and that was simply due to hooking properly.
