I found out from these guys, and I'm drunk with anticipation for July 27th, and September 3rd as well if I'm to be completely honest.

Web search lead me into this den of "don't know nothing" about something we've never seen forum full of info.......

We are waiting with expectation to see if this will actually operate in the high Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Don't think the power plant in the Eilo would make it up the first hill out here west of town. Hopefully this will have something with a little more spunk.

Haha glad you found us! I used to live at 7,000 ft above sea level and would cruise up to 10,000 ft regularly. A lot of people don't realize how much power is lost at those high elevations.

% HP LOSS = 7000 x 0.03 x 1 = 210/1000 = 0.21 or 21% HP loss at 7000 feet ASL.

So you're right in the fact that a fun car at elevation needs to come with some decent horsepower in stock form.
