In Laramie, most cars feel a 18%-20% decrease in horsepower. Force induction cars only feel 13%-15% loss. This happens with every place above 7000ft. And on top of all this, WyoTech is based here, more turbos than muscle. haha

my daily driver use all of the time car. my lowered 99 tacoma, currently at 38,000 original miles. this will go snowboarding on the days when the road is clear and we are just going to have a park day, or if im feeling up to the task of putting on chains.



i had it doing some pretty serious off roading today (for a lowered 2wd on street tires) heading out to go shooting. it sucks that by the time we were heading out it was dark and i couldnt get a good pic of the road. but this was a narrow, dirt road with some pretty steep hills and constant foot deep ruts through the entire thing that i had to straddle or i would fall in and probably get hung up

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Another subie haha, my 03 wrx after i switched to my summer wheels and tires, and no roof rack earlier this year. fun to drive, awd, decent mileage and with the rack just enough room for 4 guys to go riding. I'll edit with some winter rally pig photos later this week.


Bob goes waste deep

I love the beast. Just got some snow tires on it for this season, so its set. Going to upgrade to something awd next year most likely. I would like a subie, but im thinking i might go eclipse GSX or talon TSI/awd. Either way I'm going to keep my ski cars cheap. Took it into a guard rail 2 seasons ago in the canyon, wasnt exactly my fault (noob texans afraid to drive in the snow stopped in the middle of the road on a high camber uphill turn). I got out of the car, kicked the bumper back into place and went on my way. I love my beater.

haha i know i know, i get shit about 3 times a week from my friends. When i was looking for a truck i wanted a truck to haul my dirt bike, and that had low miles because i needed a long lasting dependable daily driver which is why i bought that truck, got it at 24,000 miles 3 years ago. and APPARENTLY ( and i dont remember this or know why i would have said it) when car shopping i said that "i dont want to look like a dam cowboy driving a huge lifted truck". I realize how wrong i was. I love lowered trucks, so at first i was all fine with it, i lowered it, got wheels did all my mods, then started actually playing around outside and exploring Idaho and realized oh shit, i kind of want a 4x4 truck now. Unfortunately the budget does not allow me to get a 4x4 of the quality i want, so i am going to have to wait to do some real off roading.

2004 M3 is my year round daily driver. My OEM rims are wrapped in Dunlop WinterSports and sandbags in the trunk help for traction on snowy days.

R.I.P to my 2006 Audi A3 3.2 She got totaled over the summer.

It's not about how many runs you get, it's the quality of the turns you made.
