So over the past couple days, I had to drive from SoCal, to Vegas, down to Phoenix, and then back home to SoCal. While staying in Vegas, I decided to drive down to the Christmas Tree Pass between Searchlight and Laughlin. It ended up just being basically a dirt road. A few ruts, but nothing to test the cooler. But I did get some cool pics.
She did awesome on this round trip. Highest temp I saw was 228. And that was yesterday between Tonopah, AZ and Palm Desert, CA, ambient temp between 87-92 the whole way. Speed limit is 75 most of the way, and I was driving straight into 45mph winds with gusts over 65mph. Maintaining 75mph was a struggle with my high resistance factor. Engine was turning at 4000-5500 most of the way, and never dropped below 3500 except a couple times when slowing down to let a big rig over. Gas mileage was horrendous, but the tranny stayed cool.
