    Thanks!
    Where on the west side are you? I just traded in my 2012 civic si for a 2013 wrx and want to meet some others that know about subaru's.

    I know a GRIP of places, the funnest part is just exploring to find your own spots, but a couple id be more than happy to share with everyone include Gilbert rd south of riggs its all farm land and all of the roads are MAINTAINED dirt so you get the pleasure of dirt with the safety of asphalt. Another good one that has been mentioned is South Mountain, BUT slightly modified... on weeks nights at like 2 AM there is no one out including cops and you can drive to the entrance and you'll notice on one side is a gate and the other side is one way road spikes, if you get creative and use your imagination its like having South Mountain as your own personal test track, i wouldnt suggest on weekend because im sure im not the only person in the world whose ever done it and id hate to see someone drive off the side of the mountain. Lastly if your wanting to see how fast your car will go i suggest going on elsworth to pecos the from elsworth east on pecos you have like 1.5 mile road that almost no one uses late at night... The last place and least riskiest and scenic drive i suggest would be the 88 or apache trail to canyon lake, its always a good time and if you continue it turns into a dirt road a few miles after canyon lake. HAVE FUN and be CAREFUL!

    There are a ton of pretty empty roads in the east valley (basically anything east from Greenfield Road). I don't get out of the suburbs too much unless I'm going to work in Chandler or school in Tempe, but I take the long road home sometimes going east on Pecos road and there are some fun twists, and its usually empty at night (but be careful, those AZ cops love to hide)

    South Mountain is a blast, done that several times and Jerome is awesome, especially if you go the back way from Prescott. Be careful when you get near the town though, cops everywhere.

    Also interested in meets in the valley if you know of any, would love to see other subie owners.

    In Tucson and also looking for Subie hangz... as far as drives, the Star Pass route is windy and really fun at night. Mt. Lemmon is also a nice drive especially mid day during the summer as the temp is in the upper 70's while 105 in town.
