You will need a BEEEEEEEEEG turbo at this altitude

I loved it when Michel Mouton took a quatro over some years ago and blew away all the RedNecks :twisted:

the Septics have been surprised (read: beaten!) by lots of Europeans, Stig Blomqvist, Mouton, Ari Vatannen (Youtube race to the clouds is just awesome!) and Mark Rennison to name but a few. Not a V8 or live back axle in sight lol
