    I had the treat of driving on the Saw Mill River Pkwy yesterday and this morning. That road RULES!!!! When the lights are green, and there is no traffic. I found myself going way over the speed limit just thinking how cool it was, and yeah, there were definitly times where you have to realize that you are probably gonna kill yourself. That road is WAY to fun and WAY to dangerous. Speed safely!!!

    I found another great place to take the curves.....and (Josh) it's RIGHT in Saratoga. Off of exit 14, go 9R east...just keep on going past the boat landing and wham....take off! You can also go another way. like RIGHT across from the golf course is a 'fork' if you will....little road. Take that all the way down. There is A TON of farmland back there, but there are also some cool richy rich houses back there....Saratoga National/State Park (whichever) is back there as well! Yesterday was GREAT out...and the Nimbus clouds were out too!

    if you want a nice road to practice on, take on 7 bridges road between rt 100 and 119 (yorktown -> mt. kisco). its nicely paved and windy. be careful though cause the curves are blind. also do not go fast in the rain you wont get any traction. i had to get my heart jump started from crashing on this road in 2000.

    THE NATION'S FIRST SUPERHIGHWAY: Instead of running the race over dangerously narrow local roads, Vanderbilt conceived of a landscaped parkway, where banked curves and the elimination of grade crossings would permit speeds of 60 MPH or more. Along the course of the parkway, 65 reinforced steel-and-concrete bridges would be constructed, none of them having a span that exceeded 23 feet long. The 16-foot-wide roadway (later widened to 22 feet) would be constructed of reinforced concrete.

    Try the Vanderbilt Parkway at Dix Hills, this little stretch or part of the road which ends either at Deer Park ave. if you going west or at Commack Road if you are going east on this road, will surely show you what the WRX is all about
    I must agree with you about the vanderbuilt. Live right there, but you have idiots that dont look both ways b4 they get on "GAME OVER" They're in their Land Rovers with their phones on their ears. Gotta be careful! But if you can avoid the oblivious drivers, it can be real fun.

    ever driven on the jackie robinson expressway? i just got on it last night and went 80 through some of the turns man what a rush of adreneline at one point i thought i was going to go side ways but was alble to keep it inline, just made the tires really squel its a really nasty turn so if you ever go on it drive it a couple of times before you get on it. That road is just like saw mill river but i think even more narrow so if you loose it you can kiss your side pannels goodbye but you can test your car really well, it told me that i need beefier sways pronto. hehe

    I've seen no less than three crashed cars, in FLAMES, on the side of the J. Robinson Expressway.

    Josh has a great road downstate! I've seen the video, and it is amazing for where I understand it to be. But he won't tell, and I don't know for sure. (Well, I do, but I won't tell either.) Maybe Josh will blindfold you and then let you drive there!
