    9000 or 11000 ft whatever Woodland Park is here in Colorado. Pikes peak will probably happen sometime over Thanksgiving. That'll be 14.100 or so... Car is tuned at 6000 ft, so should be no problem.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    I took mine to a little over 5,000 and thought I was cool. I live at ~300 feet above sea level so that was pretty high up for me, ha.

    Well, medical use is legal in NJ now. We hot-boxed the **** out of mine last week. Needless to say, it had to have been pretty high.

    I knew this was coming... That's why i even put (not mileage) in parenthesis! Oh well, nj medical is pretty lame. Your dispensaries are basically like the dmv of weed... Long lines, crappy service, same product as everywhere else :/

    Ehrmegerd!! Gerderm pertherds.

    Back to the topic, whatever the height of the mountain range in El Paso is. Hits over 5280 I recall, as there is a sign that says so. Maybe I'll get my wife up to one of the scenic overlooks and get her to join the mile high club.....

    Well, I don't think he was talking about mileage there. Recall a few hotbox sessions back in the day, car we would be in would get no mileage put on it half the time.

    LOL!

    I don't allow sm0king or smoking in my car, it's an 02 and still has that new car smell.
    I live in Maine, and for being mostly mountains, it is pretty low-overall elevation compared to many other states.

    I'd have to say, due to a very poorly tuned suspension system and roads which were never intended for more than 5mph carriage traffic, my experience is not that typical of an average driver.
    I used to get between 1 and 3ft of air over the railroad bridge in Damariscotta.
    Bear in mind this was with no traffic, having checked it for pedestrians with a pass before running it, and only on nice days with good weather. Car is also pretty heavily reinforced. Suspension was tuned using these near-regular passes.

    max, 3ft... can't say I have ever been higher.

    Just under 6000' at Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood. I'm sure I've driven higher than that in Montana, but I didn't have my WRX then.
