Pikes Peak in the Jimmy?
Video is required though!
Are you carburated or...............................Whoa, damn, I almost bordered on tech. Get this question into a more appropriate section, DO IT NOW, MOVE
Heh heh. I think the TBI will be allright, if I was carbed then... ruh roh... tech warning going off.
Either use a very strong camera case or get someone else top run the video.
do it do it
lol tech in the lounge? OH NO!!! AHHHHH!!
What the hell? BranndonC a mod?
Yeah, do it! Follow in Jesse James footsteps! He did it on Monster Garage, so you probably can too! But like other people were saying, include a video!
Hell yeah, put a big wing on her too!
There's a nice road to the top, comin down is the fun part. You can live up to your namesake.
Jiminy's right, the engine's not as important as the brakes, you want to take it slow on the way up anyway to enjoy the scenery.
Do a lot of people drive up there and get sick? Seems like a lot of altitude really fast.
He might get a little elevation headache, just chew gum on the way up.
If you had been on a dive then flown in directly for a drive up Pikes Peak then I'd say the chances would be good. Kansas to Pikes Peak though, probably not.
I touched the brakes a whole 10 times going down. Most was in the lower paved section when I could go faster than 15 mph comfortably.
Max speed going up: ~47 MPH
Max speed going down: ~55 MPH
Average speed on the upper 1/2 going up: 15-25 MPH
Average speed going down the upper half: 10-15 MPH
Going up is definately faster than going down.
Separate names with a comma.
