The wife and I took a weekend trip last weekend to Gatlinburg. While we were down that way we headed down to the Dragon. We trailer the cruiser down in case the weather stayed nice and it was decent enough for us to make a run on the Dragon.

www.kilboy.com has lots of photos from sunday march 7th. We only have photos that we took for now, and plan to buy some of his.

Onto the photos.



The tree of shame





Random photos of different cars/bikes.











according to the owner if the Evo its has a 5 speed swap and a 35R and makes 600whp on high boost.

I was LOLing at this bike but it seemed to run good.

If you click on the link above and it does not work, close the page and try it again. It works on the 2nd time for me. Then go to page 2 and you will see the Foz in action!

I want to make that trip sometime... but I still don't know what car I'd want to do it in.

funny story.

We are loading up and getting ready to go when a couple Niaan fanbois and a "600whp " evo pulls in. The guy in the 280z says, " I have never seen a real Forester STI before" to which I say, its a Canadian import model! He says that explains the front plate!!!!HAHA. Pam was LOL'ing hard!

Loading a few photos now!

LMAO :lol: pretty good story, it'd be even funnier if we had more than one of them there at the time and slapped Canadian plates on the fronts of them all. I've got enough spares kicking around here still.

Well the 35R making 600whp doesn't sound too far fetched... but he'd have to be running race gas, E85 or meth injection to pull off those numbers on a 35R. Not sure why you'd buy a VIII MR just to swap out the 6-speed for a 5... would've been cheaper to buy the RS or basic VIII (GSR) and option out the vortex generator (which I don't even see on there) and buy some take-off MR BBS wheels. Or he went with a Shepard 5-speed, or at least the shepard 1-5 gears for the 6-speed?
I'd call BS, but AMS and Buschur have made some serious numbers on the 35R's. *sigh* I want one... :frown:

Looks like an awesome trip though, I will have a week of vacation to spare next weekend. Maybe I'll make the trip down there to TotD.

I AM SO JEALOUS!

Will get myself down there on 2 wheels someday. I've been in Virginia a few times, but never down to the dragon.
I want to go back on 2 wheels with 200hp, or on a 1098s!

A local had a MR 5 speed 35R with upper 500's.

And yes, its the most badass road I have ever been on!
