How about 'Bamma? Low/no taxes, good weather, no smog laws, and MOUNTAINS.

My car is a STREET car and therefore tuned for 87 octane. You must tune for the worst that you will encounter and hope for the best.

The worst is ethanol blended 89 octane puke on a 95F day going up a mountain on boost after sitting in heat soak at the stoplight on the bottom of the hill.

My engine produces 300+WHP in those conditions so you can imagine the WHOOHOO! factor in the wintertime!
