    Saturday I went with some buddies on a little cruise up to Estes Park, CO. There was a total of 45 cars.

    It's amazing how changes in elevation affects cars. I only saw 13PSI up the mountain instead of my usual 15. We also hit rain on the way back down but my nitto drag radials did surprisingly well.

    Awesome group of cars!

    When I lived in Colorado I also noticed how much power the altitude sucked out of my engine. But mine was only normally aspirated so it was even worse as a turbo will at least overcome some of the loss.

    Looks like fun...If you're ever in North Carolina or Tennessee, try the Blue Ridge Parkway and/or Tail of the Dragon for some really good times!

    Yeah the altitude here is a killer. It makes me never want to drive in a different state or I might not come back. :lol:
