    There are a lot of speed traps along 202 -be careful. I used to live in West Chester, and I drove to King of Prussia everyday. They usually hide behind large bushes in the center divider with their radar and donuts.

    Fellows, I too live on the edge of valley forge park. On the road that runs down from the arch. 202 road surface isnt that good imo and lots of cops. there are afew better places. Someone should organize a rex day at the park. Iv seen rx8's organized as well as new vetts in the park. Just a carsual meeting on rex owners, pictures, coffee, talk, girls
    Tony, we might consider a stang day also
    I have an '01 stage 3 roush premium that is modified. about the same #'s as yourz. Its a beast to drive b/c of suspension, I prefer my rex as daily driver and have an '04 e.b. expedition that isnt to shaby

    Let me know if this sounds good to anyone?

    I'm not in the area anymore -I live in MD now, near Baltimore. You should bring your Roush to Cecil County some time and see what she runs. I usually go on Sat morning test/tunes. Maybe I'll see you there sometime.

    The roush is more of a track car, the glen....., i went to maple grove last year with someones slicks ran 11.74. Ive done alittle more to her but im done. I never get a chance to drive it! My wife will not ride in it (with me ), im not alowed to have my 2 younger kids in it ( ), gas prices going up, keep going to dds because it is so stiff i chip my teeth ( ), changed jobs and she doesnt make it up the ramps in the parking garage so i rarely drive her to work (9k miles).............
    Either keep her for fun driving car or sell and make the rex into a monster?
    Nice carz U have.

    cheers

    Rt252 too.

    There is nowhere to run around here. Although the stretch of road (rt3) between edgmont (spel?) and west chester is sometimes safe. Isn't there a dirt road somewhere in there?

    Gravel/dirt road found between Rt252 and West Chester Univ. if anyone cares. Road is pretty straight, but I didn't follow it in far enough. Transitions from asphalt to gravel/dirt early. Some dips and twists but nothing major like in the mountains or west coast...

    where the heck is this? I've never even heard of it before and I've lived in WC almost all my live.

    rt202 from matlack street to about fraser is a pretty nice surface. I've seen cops sit up in the bushes at that traffic light pretty late at night by fedex(I thought one was coming after me last week, but apparently not) I always like lining up on point at that light because there are no good spots for cops till you get up to the gay st exit. after that, there are bushes and things in the median and in years past(although not recently) i've seen numerous cops sitting up on the ramps for boot road. at this point i naturally slow down there...its like a reflex. Once you pass rt 30 the surface on 202 chages to sh1t. but rt 30 is nice to Dtown just before KOP, 202 turns into a smooth surface and 3 lanes all the way to 76...thats nice.
