Drag racing engine temp?

Where do these things make the most power hot or cold?

Ruthless, Maybe thats where my HP is going. I made a pass at 125 degrees, then I made on at 105 and it lost 1.5 mph. maybe if I get it warmer it will make more power. Thanks, Vince

04-05 ZX-10's like to be around 165 for good power.... but the mapping will change slightly between 165 and 185... so you would need to make sure 100% throttle is mapped at 165 engine temp.
