Join us for Red Rocks Classic! It's a Friday through Monday this year since the Snowmass Vintage Car Races are the following weekend this year, so the thought was folks may want to turn it into a week long vacation. Hopefully that makes sense. smile.gif

We'll provide more info as we make plans but wanted to get this event on your calendars. We'll be doing drives to great places that include the Gateway Museum, Colorado National Monument and Grand Mesa.

Hotel info for entire event: Comfort Inn, 400 Jurassic Ave, Fruita, CO 81521
King or double room $109+tax under Porsche 914 group, 970-858-1333. Pets are $10/day extra. Cancel 30 days before RRC (not that you'd do that!) to avoid penalty. The rooms will be held until Aug 7.

See you there!!!

I think I'm in. Finally have a running car after several years of down time. Is there trailer parking? Although it would certainly make it, might have to trailer out if the wife comes. She likes things like A/C, Quieter ride, etc.

That's great news, Danny! Yes, there's a lot next to the hotel where you can park your trailer. It's a big lot so the manager said we can park a lot of trailers.

Mechanically inclined people talk to me. 2.0 with great running Dellortos. At 620 feet MSL. How will these carbs react to that altitude. Will I need to rejet half way up the mountain ?

Just tried to make reservations and the desk jockey said he didn't have our group up and he wanted to charge me more - then recommended I call back when the group is set up otherwise I wouldn't get the discount. Kind of a jerk about it too... ask for anyone except Cory.... dry.gif

There was actually an issue with the group reservation. I hope it's fixed now. Thanks for letting me know! beerchug.gif

My Weber 44 idf carbs are jetted for sea level. The highest I have had my car was Sandia peek in New Mexico. That was 10'600 ft above sea level. It started fine and ran OK as long as I kept the revs up a bit when idling. YMMV. biggrin.gif

My experience...

My Raby 2270cc four w/dual 44 IDF carbs are also tuned for sea level. A few weeks ago while driving @ 7,000 ft (Flagstaff, AZ) they started acting funny but like Elliot said, just keep the Rev's up and you should be okay.
I honestly didn't consider the high altitude prior to Route 66 event and glad I didn't field rejet.

My back up was having mgp4591 (Mike) help me out poke.gif

Just made my reservations and they told me $99 + tax.... that was before I'd mentioned I was with the group! Hurry before they change their minds! w00t.gif

919 miles. working on this but it'll be a trailer. I've done the 2 day trip in the teener and my butt isn't up to that mileage anymore.

serious consideration though.
