I'd bet your altitude was definitely part of the cause for the low readings.  When I was in school, the instructor spent about an hour or so covering that issue with carbs.  Now if I could only remember what he said, LOL.

Gotta agree with Tomslik too...  No real qualifications to hit the track other than the cost of the run.  Used to be a joke in Atlanta because we'd see kids and 20 somethings with rental cars hitting the track.  NOT rented sports/muscle cars either; HiPo cars like Chevy Cavaliers, LOL.
