    There are plenty of roads on which to leave NJ. I recommend you take the fastest one.

    The roads these rallies take place on are some of the best in NJ. I know for a fact since we were driving them at a "brisk" pace making up time on Sunday's "Mini Monte" Rally. We came in 2nd place in Stock class.

It is a fluctuating uphill twisty/downhill twisty assortment of turns. I would suggest driving this straight at least once before you amp up your speed as to get used to the road and the points where the speed traps are. If i can think of anymore I will post them up.
    Those are exactly the roads we were driving on during Sunday's rally. I caught some air going down one road with two bridges, one right after the other.

    One really beat up plastic stock skidplate!

    Anything that breaks when rallying will be replaced with performance parts. I have STi springs sitting around waiting for some struts. I do have a whiteline rear sway bar as well.

    Yea. My friend raced his twin-charged mini-cooper in that race. You prob saw it. I think he raced in the novice class and came in first. I dont think there is any way you would have missed that car. To refresh your memory it is light blue with volk rims, and a CF hood. You remember that? Those are some of the BEST roads to just cruise on. I saw the map of the course you guys took and it was sick. I think the bridge you caught air on was on Black River rd. Did it run parallel to the river and when you get to the bridge was it a single lane bridge?

    I was up there on my bike today. Nice driving, but keep the speeds down. Oakland/Mahwah cops will ticket you.
