LeMons/Rally Road Trip, 1.3
The Prelude has been getting about 31 MPG while running an average speed of about 70 MPH, as I've continued to write this update the snow has started to come down a bit harder and there's a slight dusting on the road. We have found that the Prelude's steering tends to pull to the left a bit - it's clearly tuned for NASCAR.
*UPDATE* 1:56 AM - We just climbed and crossed the Continental Divide in the middle of a snowstorm. About 500 foot visibility, I'm not entirely sure I'm not a dermatologist, or something. We were going at most 25 MPH with about an inch of snow on the ground with a 6% grade - oh, with S turns - and double trailer trucks passing us on the downhills. Fun stuff! Thankfully, we did what any hoon would do, dab the oppo on the downhill and drift around the turns. Actually, no we needed to make sure the car made it through unscathed which thankfully it did. After 3 Red Bulls each and the snowstorm we are feeling good and ready to roll out some more miles. Check in later when the sunrises...
