      ??? The summit of Mt Wilson is 5,710 ft.

      The highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains is Mount San Antonio (Mt. Baldy) at 10,064 ft.

      Lucky miss Oscar! I can't wait to hear your formed thoughts of the TDI box.

      This is obviously wrong because those trees don't grow at 14,000 feet of elevation...

      Maybe was confused with Wilson Peak (Colorado) which is over 14k feet.

      I did a quick Google search and obviously grabbed the info from the wrong mountain. Sorry
      Plus I don't have a great gauge of ft sizes, since I am originally from the land of meters.

      Red Box is 4640' and Mt Wilson Summit is 5713', this clip is about half way so call it 5,000' (1524m). I would be the first person to admit the "lack of performance" is related to the driver not the car. Plus, you just cannot charge on these roads as they are open to the public. I shot this 30 minutes after sunrise (drove up there in the dark to stage) and there were already people up there hiking and biking.

      For you Socal guys, Mt. Wilson road is an excellent low speed run.
