Any exit between laboratory and the state line off of 79 will result in fun roads. Car or bike.

take Route 50 west out of PA. once you cross into WV, turn left onto WV88 heading south. stay on WV88 until it meets up with US-250 and continue on that. this will take you down and around the corner of PA and put you in Hundred, WV. you can then go north and come home on 18 or back track. it's about 200 miles round trip.
That looks like a good trip, I just plotted it out on google maps, looks like a 4-5 hr drive. If I could get enough people to make a fun day out of it, that is some drive I'd like to make.

Pittsburgh cars n coffee is having a little cruise tonight it looks like at 7pm robinson starbucks. I may be heading to that. The cruises are always fast paced on fun roads
I'm in usc. I haven't seen any other WRB 08+ WRX or STi since I got mine so I must not have seen you around yet. Where in Finleyville? I am down there pretty often.

I saw on the cars & coffee facebook page about last night's meet but I couldn't make it. I am going to come out to one of their Saturday meets soon though.

Thanks. I tried 20 times with no success. Yesterday I decided it was probably the chip in the cable, so I went to Best Buy and bought a Dynex brand converter (with drivers included) and a 6' USB extension cable. At least now Romraider sees the COM port, but displays no values.

Something happened to my Romraider setup though, as it now never sees my ECU defs or logger defs no matter what.

Cant wait for this! Car should be a little better this year i hope with new RCE T2 coilovers. Going to try out the RS3's instead of the star specs too.
There is also a TT the following weekend, 21st and 22nd, up at beaverun (now PIRC) for anyone who might be interested.

From a few days ago. It's like a got a new car all over again! The only thing I would have done different is brought a chair and a 6 pack of beer. Had a blast though, Nate was a pleasure to deal with and my car kinda scares me now.

240/250? Nah. I think its more like 170-180.
Who cares if it reads low, its a Tuning tool not a competition.
I made 270 on a ht68 @17psi

6sih people start to roll in....we somehow are always the last to leave

See you guys there and we're bringing/giving back Rubyru's JDM twin scroll equipped bugeye that you guys might really like to see! Details when we get there, but it sports a number of JDM goods as well as our prototype twin scroll downpipe. Going to be a great track car this year especially with the new tmic setup it's wearing! We're also bringing shirts for the guys that ordered them and we have a number of other ones available if anyone else is interested!

Were running Jarrett's DSP 2.5RS this year (with our new standalone ecu ) and I'm stoked to get back to racing again. Planning to run the wrx at more time trials, track events, etc but the RS should be a blast! Trying to get tje wrx done for the 21st/22nd event, but we'll see.

Looking forward to getting your STi all ready to go for you next fri! Should be 100% for the event on the 15th!

Minimal maintenance and zero calibration doesn't help. Not saying I know the state of the dyno, but a measuring device of any kind needs frequent calibration. The more complicated the device, the more frequent the calibration schedule. Most places don't do enough, especially with the mustang. Tons of friction, vibration, and dirt doesn't make for happy instrumentation. Not that it works worse for the purpose. It's just a load. The measurements may be way off.

Sorta like when Maverick left Hollywood to go after Viper, and they went head to head, but then, out of nowhere, JESTER gets on maverick's 6 and "Bingo, Mavericks dead, get out of there kid".

I need to ride on your car. I'm pretty sure with the decent stock turbo and dual avcs the newer cars with a good tune and bolt ons are a lot of fun.

You mean the 201 that goes from Belle Vernon to Connelsville ? If you like that take 711 out of Connelsville into the mountains up to Indian Head . You can cut back to seventy via 31 through Mt Pleasant or keep on to Ligonier and head back to the Burg on 30/119/turnpike. Lot's of cool places to stop along the way once you get up to Indian Head and beyond. Tall Ceders in Donegal comes to mind.... if it's still there LOL.
