yea you got to remember that bandimere is nearly 2 miles off sea level im going to lose about a second atleast from sea level
bandimere is about the only place in the Denver/Springs area that you can run the 1/4[]. I think theres a program somewhere that lets you calculate your times at sea level, even though i wouldnt count it as a real run, its still pretty interesting.

Be sure to post times when you get them though.

Seriously though, Performers get rapped by 185's... think about that.

Its like putting AFR 165's on a 427W....
