This is for an older model, but it might be similar, or close to what ours needs.

I think they should cut up their license and buy a bus pass.

I'm talking about weekly meets...

http://www.i-club.com/forums/meeting...et-9pm-190687/

http://www.i-club.com/forums/meeting...nights-193191/

The Canibeat, Stay Stetti, and Meals-n-Wheels stuff isn't as frequent but always attract police which is no fun. Not to mention that they are usually populated with annoying people doing inappropriate things.

Thee highway 9??? words can only describe.. me gusta!!!

Id recommend you to be careful driving on highway 9. Lately there have been a lot of Honda kids and an increase of cops compared to 6months ago..

Other good roads though are page mill, highway 35, highway 84. Those are my favorite for weekend drives.

+1000000000. If you can't find your headlights and replace the halogen bulb, get a bus pass.

I was on 9 the other day.

It looked like the bridge at Saratoga Springs is starting to really give out. Looks like they're putting in lights and making it a one lane bridge.

I'm still bummed that they flattened out the jump a few years ago.

Yah it seems like they try to put lights somewhere on the way up towards the stop sign Although heading towards vista point at least the road work has made that one straightaway a lot smoother Theres a decent group of my buddies heading up tonight if you guys wanted to go. Probably meeting at the gas station around 930ish. my bro with his 04sti and a new friend we met also with an 04sti are coming along as well-both btw have fully built motors

Might have just been a coincidence then.. because the last few times I went, I stubled over 2 cops going up, and a group of honda kids.. Prior to that, I only saw 1 cop max, and 1-2honda kids..

I was there Tuesday afternoon. Not really any speedy cars. Lots of motorcycles though. As I was going down, I saw 6 CHP Motorcycles going up.

I'll pass. Going up 9 with 2 built STi's doesn't sound like something I want to be a part of. No offense.

Lol if you think I was going to keep up with them then you must think I'm a retard haha. The 2 subarus I mentioned are the only ones in the group of people with subaru's. It's goin to be a mixture of everything: bmw's, Hondas (of course), old infiniti's, 240's, etc.
Come on Jordan don't be a chicken
If anything it's more of a car meet than a "let's go up 9 as fast as we can". Hah
