El Mirage is about 2400 ft. We run May to November (except August). The air tends to be very dry and a bit thin. And we are running on dirt. The lakebed can vary geatly from year to year. This winter we have had very little rain and no one is expecting a great surface. Plus we are running with cars and they tend to chew up the surface pretty good.
I'm running VP C12 race gas. 108 octane and has a great kick. I was supposed to have the sidecar ready last year but didn't. I put the motor in my Norton to check it out and make sure I had put it together right. Its best run was 124.900. Today I have to mount the battery and it should fire up. Hopefully. Maybe. Then its finish up the alterations to the body and away we go. Heres a pic of the Norton with the sidecar motor at 125.
