Ok, the good is these cars with modern rubber and shocks are very capable on curvy mountain roads. All I have are max all season 17 inch tires and KYB shocks. I do have drilled and slotted front rotors and using DOT 4 hydraulic fluid. That did not help much in brake fade, you are warned. I made it abour 4 miles in before the brakes started to revolt. I should have cooled the car off before taking part but now I know. 3rd gear is very tall when you are up in altitude so plan your shifts accordingly. Last but not least RainX your windshield, southern thunderstorms are no joke. I ran into a random thunderstorm and it was more challenging than the Dragon to drive. Happy Motoring.
