Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

In our "unofficial" post for the Fall Dragon Run it was decided that the second weekend in October (13th-15th) would be our best date as everyone seems to like that weekend. This gives us time to let www.tailofthedragon.com know about our plans and we can go up on their website like we've done in the past



This will be my fourth year in a row running the Dragon and it never gets old! I plan on bringing a couple SE MI CEG-ers to the run this year, I've made a promise to get SOMEONE down here with us. One local CEG-er looking to go is Trapps and his Volvo S60R! I expect that AWD beast to carve up the Dragon and speaking of "AWD Beast", Hector will be making his return after 2 years and is chomping at the bit to run his EVO , so he'll be coming down with as well. I have a couple other guys to target and either myself or them personally can come on in here with their RSVP



I can't stress enough how much fun the Dragon Run is, but to those who haven't run it before, let me give you some advice:

-tires and brakes MUST be in great shape

-run it normal the first time out

-DON'T TRY AND BE A HERO

-if you've got a crotch rocket behind you and he can pass, waive him by

-any other maintence should be done before hand, everything is maxed out in your car down there

-bring your 2-way radio

-HAVE FUN


We can either pass along hotel/motel/cabin info here or in a seperate post, but I stay in the cabins in Tellico Plains Tennessee. Its called Caney Creek Village www.caneycreekvillage.com I paid about $165.00 for 3 nights as I come in on Thursday, my travel day and I really like these cabins for a number of reasons. One is their clean and nice, like something your family owns but even more important is the fact that their right where the Cherahola Skyways starts. They also have a cabin that sleeps 8, so those of you looking to save some money and have a couple buddies coming along its perfect for you guys! The Skyway runs right into the Dragon and is an AWESOME road in its self The elevation changes are amazing, anywhere from 3-5,000 f+ with signs along the way to tell you as much. There's areas where you can pull over and take pics and even go to the restroom when nature calls I'd like to tell you that there's NOTHING out there though, so its something to keep in mind.


Please feel free to ask any questions, make comments, tell us how pumped up you are for the run, whether its your first time or 100th time I look forward to not only the run, but meeting up with everyone I only get to see once a year and making and meeting new friends out there, its all about the people out on the Dragon

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

Cabin 6 is apparently the largest - Cabin 6:
2 Bedroom cabins with Jacuzzi or hot tub sleep 7,
full kitchen, satellite TV .....$129 nite.

Did we get $10 off because of off season?

But there is only 2 bedrooms? Or am I misreading something. It says the cabin can sleep 7. I guess they have cots or pull out couches.

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

Trey if you go to the Caney Creek website under "rate sheet" it describes the largest cabin is a two bedroom that can sleep up to 7 people. Brad called and they quoted him $119 a night for that cabin. If seven people stay in that cabin, it breaks down to $17 dollars per person per night. We're talking Fri into Sat/Sat into Sun. *Brad's on the phone with you right now-but I'll keep typing anyway LOL*

So since Klasse Act and Evolution have their own cabins we'll have a pretty good party going espically if the cabins are like number 4, 5, and 6.

People in cabin 6 so far (Married couples get the bedrooms!):
1. Brad
2. Kristy
3. Ross
4. Trey
5. Brian
6.
7.

Hey Eric - you and your wife want spots 6 and 7? I can't be the only girl!

The sooner we get a solid reservation the better. October 14th is an OFF UT Football day. That means everyone will be getting married that weekend and wanting cabins/chalets. (as we ran into that problem last year trying to find a honeymoon place at the last minute). It also means more traffic potentially on the Dragon and in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg.

I guess if more people want to do the run as time goes on (cough cough Amanda cough cough) maybe the other single room cabins will be avaiable. Hey Bonnie, want to stay at Caney Creek too? What about the friends you're bringing from Michigan Roger?

~I'm a Leo by the way.... If you can't tell. LOL Contrary to the state of my car and apartment I'm very organized.~ I apologize if I'm stepping on anyones toes.

As far as whom I'm bringing, well, I gotta send Trapps a PM about this because he told me to let him know when we set this up, so now that its set up I will I'm also looking at Stazi, Barge and Steeda to make the trip, we'll cross our fingers and hope for the best

FWIW, I paid for mine in full already Does anyone of you guys have dibs on the large cabin, she told me someone did and was waiting to hear from them. Like I said before, if you can't get those the lady at Caney Creek will steer you in the direction of another local cabin, thats how they are down there

I'm really glad to see you guys are "taking the bull by the horns" on this, good job. This is just making me look more forward to the trip and like I said before "I love it when a plan comes together!"


BTW, let me show you guys a little something from my Dragon Run last year, lets call it "moto-vation" for those of you who haven't been to the Dragon yet

Notice there's NO wheelwell gap on this shot


Now in this pic, notice the p/s rear tire how much its angled in, awesome Ah the joys of IRS!


Another thing I'd like to point out to you guys who haven't run the Dragon is where my car is in proximity to the double yellow, thats a good thing and something you need to pay attention to. The guys at www.killboy.com will post pics of you crossing the double yellow, don't be a "richardhead" out there

BTW, sorry the pics aren't any bigger, but when I click onto enlarge photo, it doesn't end in jpg and the pics can't be posted, any thoughts on this I wanna post the pics larger because these were professionally taken by the guys at killboy and if you could see them larger, its that much more awesome of a pic

Yeah, that sucks and they do call them out for doing that on killboy, but most bikers aren't THAT stupid when riding a crotch rocket out there


Last year while I was out there this pewter colored last gen Firebird came around a blind corner and I saw him freak out at the last minute and he cut the wheel and went off the soft shoulder a little bit, enough to make the tire go "pop" , what a dumb ass, taking some fat ass car out there and trying to make it do tricks it can't do Thats a perfect example of what I'm talking about!

I'm not afraid to pull one of those dumbass riders out of my grill; I've got a spare.


And I like the pics, Roger. Kilby sets up at a great high speed, banked corner. When you round one of the corners before that one and see them set up outside the apex of that big'un, it's wide open throttle all the way 'round.

The fall run will be the SVTs 4th or 5th time on the Dragon.
Brad went by himself one time, the Summer run, and we plan on running it a few times just for fun before the fall run. (since we're so close and all)

When I was 12 I went on the Dragon with my parents in a brand new 1995 Contour GL. We had a Topaz and Tempo since 1985 and rented a new Contour just to see how it performs.

After. As I said, I grew up with/learned how to drive on Tempo. Very interested in Contours from a very young age since they replaced the Tempos/Topaz. When I was 12 (same summer as dragon run w/the rents) I stood in Lance Cunningham Ford lot looking at the line of new Contours and said "I *will* have one of these cars one day" I drove the Tempo all though my junior year of college, and finally had enough credit/money to get my 1999 SE. Then I met Brad. He appreciated my SE and thought it a good looking car. He knew SVT meant "Fast Ford" but didn't really put two and two together about a Contour SVT until me met me. When my SE got totaled in Myrtle Beach, he was just upset as I was. Finally, a few months after that, it was Brad who spotted our SVT on Reeder Chevy's lot (a trade in) and the rest is history.

I know theres some motels right off of I-75 on 68, can't miss em' and you'd only be about 15 minutes away from us in Tellico. Its a straight shot down 68, no problems meeting up with us every morning before we head out to cut that Dragons head off ....don't worry, it grows back pretty fast!!!

Stayed at the Sleep Inn in Etowah. Direct shot off I-75, quick link into Tellico & the Skyway. Closer than staying near I-75 & Hwy 68 - and better prices, at least I got a better price than the Best Western.

The Sleep Inn is NEW also.

If you stay there, try the Farmhouse for lunch/dinner.

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

I just reserved Caney Creek Cabin #3 for 2 Cougars!!

GrandMasterKhan (Kenneth), my daughter, Peggy, and I (Marge) will be there. Last fall we joined the group who stayed at the Microtel, and are glad to be joining you again this year!

The woman I spoke to said if we can get a total of 4 cabins we can get a group rate. Can we find 2 more cabins-worth of people?


Edit: I forgot to say, we 3 will be in Robbinsville, NC Monday night - Wednesday morning (July 3 - 5), playing on the Dragon before going to CougarFest in Indianapolis. We're staying at the Microtel, come find us if you're nearby!!

My white cougar will be around Pigeon Forge - Seiverville, TN tomorrow afternoon to Monday afternoon, then on to Robbinsville. After some mountain playtime, on Wednesday GMK's grey cougar & my white one will run to Indianapolis for CougarFest, leaving there on the following Sunday for parts southeast.

RandMcNally figures my basic trip (without side excursions and playtime) will be 2,520 miles... last year's trip was over 3,000. By the time I get home, I'll have 105,000 miles on the car, I'm sure. (Can you tell I love to drive?? )

I can't stress enough how much fun the Dragon Run is, but to those who haven't run it before, let me give you some advice:

-tires and brakes MUST be in great shape

-run it normal the first time out

-DON'T TRY AND BE A HERO

-if you've got a crotch rocket behind you and he can pass, waive him by

-any other maintence should be done before hand, everything is maxed out in your car down there

-bring your 2-way radio

-HAVE FUN





I'd like to add to this list. It is a very good list BTW. Definately have your safety equipment in top shape, and the radios add another dimension to the ride.

-Take a look at the dragon web site & get familiar with the bikers hand signals. They can warn you about accidents, on-coming trucks, and law enforcement activity. All quite valuable information. They'll also let you know when you're screwing up.

-Stay in your lane. Crossing the double yellow is VERY strictly enforced there, if not by the LEOs, then by the bikers.

-Bikers are comparatively very vulnerable, so watch out for them like they are your children. They love that... Biker chicks especially...

If you want to have some activities other than the Dragon Run to keep the non-drivers happy, I'd suggest a day for waterfall runs in NC, or winery visits (Tennessee Valley Winery has some wines that exceeded my expectations - really), or perhaps even hunt down the geo-caches in the area. You could even play in the mud at one of the mines in NC to find some rubys, emeralds, or other gems. Might pay for the trip...

Great points Jim For example, if a biker is coming at you from the opposite direction and he's waving his hand down at the ground it means one of two things, a fellow biker is down and there's a back-up ahead of you or theres a cop, either way...SLOW DOWN! Most of the bikers up there, including the crotch rocket guys are pretty cool and the one thing I know they like is when you wave them around to pass you. You let them know its ok to pass and it takes any fear out of their heads, a win/win for everyone, you don't slow them down anymore and you don't have to worry about a bike behind you

I just gotta figure out how to make the slow choppers get outta the way. During the summer run I didn't pass anyone on the dragon but during the fall, I have. If you chose to do this, be very careful. Most of the time it's better just to pull off and get some distance between you and the slow thing and then have fun, but occasionally you can find a safe area to pass (it's all double yellow though so be careful).

There's really no safe and official way to make them pull over. Just pull over your own self and give them some space. That works best and no one gets run off the road.

I second Eric on this one, no doubt about it and if you wanna see some restraint, check out the pic on killboy where I'm stuck behind this cranberry colored C5 convertable This guy and his wife were doing 15 mph around the Dragon, you've got to be kidding me and when he finally pulled over or whatever he did, we all took off doing a whole 40-45mph, what a tool that guy was. We were there the second weekend in October last year, so if you wanna see a funny pic or maybe someone car post it for us, that would be great.

Wasn't my white (or whatever) coug that you're thinking of - I joined the CEG run for the first time last October. Before that my runs were in July 04 on my way from Indy (CougarFest) to Fl and in July 05, with GMK's grey coug on the way to Indy for CougarFest, and again this last week on our way to CF...

You've got plenty of time to get this taken care of and as far as your wifes car goes, well, its got "low ego emission" so it should be fine Seriously though, the car is built for that type of road and as long as you take it easy the first time out, you'll be fine, trust me!

Are you talking to me or Eric now? Eric had 225/45s kuhmo asx on his car when we were all there last time.

I had 215/45

I know have 225/45

I have 225/50/16s comin.

And I think it's just the offset off the wheels causing the rubbing. I don't mind the rubbing, but the cutting is what gets me. I've banged and cut the offending parts, but I'm not sure yet if I did enough, I still gotta check. Mainly I just don't want it cutting the new race rubber, but unfortunately, the wheels I have coming also have a stupid offset (but weigh ~14lbs.)

Okay... I just got off the phone with Brad, he's unable to get to a computer right now... Here's the deal.

The manager lady at Caney Creek wanted to know what kind of cars we have, etc. Since we now have reserved a large chunk of her cabins. She asked if she could bring out her 65 Mustang - Brad said it would most definently be respected. The lady had an idea of a car show. Basically she wants us to give up a half a day and have a car show in the caney creek parking lot in order to draw attention and crowds to the cabins. (Free advertising). She said she will give us HALF OFF. LOL Brad and I said we'd have no problems with giving up a half day for a carshow to get half off the price, but he told her "I'll check the boards and see what everyone says-call you back." She wants us to promote Caney Creek for her-I think we can totally do that :-)

I sorta agree with Roger. The cost of the cabins isn't all that much, and if this show thing ends up being too much of a hassle, I'd prefer not to do it. Though if it's not a hassle and only takes up 2-3 hours, then it'd be fine.

I don't think it's gonna be a hassle. Just a matter of where it will be, then mod up.

I suspect that the show will be on the cabin grounds, or nearby since that is what she's trying to promote. She may just put the shiney cars by the main road with you guys milling about to attract attention. Then a sign for the cabins displayed at the corner. Just be sure you've got permission to stage there. That will be her responsibility to arrange.

Yeah I got flat black. I THINK all rota stocks is black and bronze for 16" 4x108 slipstreams. I don't like bronze. Don't really care about the black either, but it's just for autox/mountains/track. If I feel like it, I'll either paint em or have a friend powdercoat them.

And the victoracers and carbotech pads came today.

I found taking 75 striaght throught atlanta to 575/SR-5/US 76 to 60 to 64/129/74 was the fastest. You of course still run the risk of hitting traffic in atlanta or on 575, but it's usually not bad.

The other is a BBQ on 68, but not Big Bobs or something. We went there last year and it was ok, but theres another place on the same side of road closer to I-75 thats AWESOME We'll eat good while we're down there, I mean we're on vacation afterall Hardee's in THE breakfast stop though!

The Tellica Cafe is awesome, quality home cookin' and great staff I was there at that other BBQ place last year when I had my Dad with me and I can't quite remember the name of the place, we'll all have to check it out. What a day we have planned while we're down there:

-good breakfast at Hardees

-57 mile drive through the Cherahola, 3-5K feet of elevation changes with many places to stop and take pics

-318 turns in 11 miles...THE DRAGON , or should I say 636 turns in 22 miles, seeing you've gotta go back the same way

-back through the Cherahola when the sun starts going down

-dinner with friends at a quality restaraunt to talk about the days events

-hangin' out back at the cabins

-go to bed and do it all over again the next day!!!

Jim, how about one of your cars going then, that should be a bit easier It would be great to see you guys again, last year was alot of fun!



Hector, maybe it could be like an episode of the Twilight Zone where we just flip the calander and BAM!, its October



The concern of "if the people show up who say their showing up" is not a concern, I mean look at who were talkin' about here IMO this is the Dragon Run thats going to get a couple people in SE MI off their duffs and acutally step up and come down here next year (I hope), but then again, I said I was going to get someone from the SEMI CEG to come this year and I failed, again Something about 600 miles and 11 hours scares people away for some reason So what, I put 1850 miles on my car last year, no biggie, I mean its once a year and its well worth the ride and time IMO

My aunt lives in Clinton Township MI and I've made the trip 11 times in my life. Ohio is sooooooooo boring, it goes on and on and seems like it never ends. (Execpt for that huge fire torch thing outside Lima.) She comes down here about twice a year though, she has made the trip in as little as 9 hours before, that's no bathroom breaks, no food stops, etc. If you take the necessary breaks its about 10 hours. Of course, that's from your place to knoxville.. Its another 45ish minutes from Knoxville to the dragon.

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

Ohio sucks for sure, but then again I do leave pretty early in the morning so its dark for a good portion of the trip I make the best of it though because I know what waiting for me a little further south! I have to say though that downtown Cincy is pretty cool, the bridge and baseball stadium is acutally pretty scenic I really like once you get into Tennesse though, the hills on I-75 are pretty impressive and I remember when I went down there the first time in the CSVT that I had to bump up the speed on the cruize control to about 80 so it would get up the hills a bit easier BTW, I live in Macomb Township which is basically a little N of your aunt and if she ever needs a good detailing done to her car, have her give me a call, seriously



*Read between the lines here, but don't get this locked*

I believe its Jonestown Kentucky, I-75, very long and VERY straight

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

I just wanted to re-state something that was said at the very begining.

-Bring 2-Way Radios-

On the Summer run, the radios proved to be valuable and fun. 1) Instead of several seperate cars driving along, we can talk freely to each other and make it seem as we are all riding in one car. 2)Lead car can pass and let the rest know of upcoming obstacles *cough cough BYCICLES* 3)Warn of upcoming police etc, you get the idea.

Wanted to mention it now so that those who don't have them can get them.

Brad and I have two extras that we can bring. It helps to have radios that can "auto talk" without pressing a button.

I thought I recalled you having to drive a bit to get signal. Maybe I'm thinking something else.

My phone works in parts of the mountains up there and works fine in town, but on the actual dragon it doesn't, atleast the areas I pulled it out and looked, I wasn't exactly paying a lotta attention to it.

An older tri band phone (has analog) probably has a better chance of catching a signal up there.

Should not be a problem GMAN. Public road, so everybody is welcome. In addition to that, it has been my experience that the CEGers break up into smaller groups to run the Dragon to minimize clashes with other traffic and allow those with varying levels of enthusiasm run at a comfortable pace.

I'm looking forward to seeing the 650i on the Dragon! Alot of people don't even see those cars once in years time and I for one love those cars Now I'm not as well versed as I should be on those, but do you have the V8 or the V12 in yours I really hope we get to meet up at that cool clearing past the Fugitive Dam Overview and get some pics with the BMW's


The only downside to GMAN and his group is this, now its going to make the fall Dragon Run take that much longer to look forward to knowing we've got another group to look forward to seeing BTW GMAN, where's your group staying at while your down there

Hey Gals/Guys,

I will be sure to remain humble on the roads and share the bandwidth with my Contour Sisters and Brothers.

Okay, it looks like Kremithefrog has been doing your homework.

We have 17 BMW's coming right now. We are called,"BMW Dragon Slayers". It started off for 6 series only but it grew based on other Bimmer friends asking to join.

We have the '07 ///M6, '06 ///M5, '00-'03 ///M5 coming to play: 5 litre V10-500bhp & 383 lb/ft. of torque [4.9 litre V8 400bhp & 368 lb/ft. of torque] for the '00-'03 ///M5

We have the '06 650i, '05 645Ci coming to play: 4.8 litre V8 360bhp & 360 lb/ft. of torque [4.5 litre V8 333bhp & 325 lb/ft. of torque] for the '05 645Ci

We have the rest of the gang coming to play: 635csi, 545i, 530i, 330i, and 325i [3, 4.5, 3, & 2.5 litres respectively] HP is no less than 225 and torque no less than 155.

So as you can see, it's going to be real fun and I hope to meet up with you guys! Thank you for being so nice to a newbie on your forum.

My color ride is a Silver Grey Cabrio!

GMAN, IMO the 635CSi's are some of the best lookin' BMW's ever and I'm glad to see theres some coming and I hope to see an M6 Do you have some pics you can share of some of the car that are coming?


Like Kremit said, your staying at some $$$$ places and most of us are working stiffs or younger guys guys going to college still (ages anywhere from 21 to 36 like myself to a bit older) but one thing that binds us all together is our love for all things cars I know you guys said your new to the area and all I can say is this and its VERY good advice to the first timers:

-run the Dragon as normal as you can the first time out, the road isn't going anywhere and you can run it as many times as you want, so no hurry to learn it right away

-bring two-way radios, its most helpful for accidents and cops, although I haven't seen alot of cops out there in my 3 years in a row of going out there. There was alot of bike accidents last year though w/ two people being airlifted out of the area, so that sucked


-on the lighter side make sure you stop at Wheelers bike shop and get yourself a t-shirt. He's a small, independant business man and I like to partronize his shop as often as possible, so I always buy a shirt and couple other items every time out there. He's a great guy to talk to for sure and sells everything Dragon related

-just incase your low on gas remember that Deals Gap sells gas too

Just to "wet your whistle", here's some pics from the 04' run as well as the run from 05'. In the 04' run I've got the silver Contour SVT with dark blue stripes and the BBS rims and in the 05' run, I've got the Crossfire

I'm 20, and may or may not be the youngest up there, but yeah, younger than 21 (don't tell anyone).

Definitely run the dragon within your limits. Never try to keep up with another car. I tried my first time up there and ended up looking at the road in the opposite direction. I was lucky I was able to keep it from going off the side.

When there is a lotta traffic up there, there are cops. Shouldn't be bad for the fall run, but when there are bikes wrecking, cops come up. Don't worry about tickets and whatnot as people warn you before you come upon a cop, but they just slow down your pace. Cops are quite understanding up there from what I've seen.

Go to Wheelers for sure. He seemed to be a good guy and carries the true tailofthedragon.com stuff, unlike the store at Deal's Gap.

We will come with our driving shoes and gloves.
Many of us run on the track or back road drive on the twisties regularly, so this should be F-U-N!

My plan exactly on the TOD. Take it easy on the first few runs. Some of us have driven the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Caesar's Head, and the NUMASSMONTRING. We will see what the road has to offer, it's looks real scary but fun.

I will be driving the hell out of the Crossfire out there, just like I did last year! Compared to my old CSVT it isn't even close, less weight, more torque, more hp, larger tires, BIGGER brakes and most importantly...RWD! I'm certainly not saying its an M3 or anything, but the car kicks ass on that tight, twisty road for sure I'm really looking forward to swapping cars with Hector, he's got a modded 03' EVO VIII, thats what I'm looking forward to most


I've added "Chevron stripes" to the Crossfire for this year, look out


You guys being presidents of companies are already cool because you've visited this forum and once you meet us, you'll see how we are With your experience running in Germany the Dragon shouldn't be a problem, but keep in mind the Dragon has almost twice the turns as the Nuerburg Ring (forgive the spelling, I'm lazy to look first ) Hands down, this is going to be the best running of the Dragon ever for us in the fall!!!

You would love that Evo.

GMAN - I take it from your posts you and your crew havn't been to Deal's Gap? Well, there are a few restaraunts in Robbinsville; which is a 2-stoplight town. I'm pretty sure our big group of Contours and your big group of BMW's will eventually run into each other. As for scenic shots, there are very few pull-off areas on the actual Dragon that are large enough for our groups. The Cherahola Skyway has a few as well. Usually, we try to get a couple real good group shots of everyone down by the lake, then break off into smaller groups to actually run the Dragon.

GMAN, a good size group of us are staying in Tellico Plains which is home to the beginning of the Cherahola Skyway, a 57 mile journey to get to the Dragon! This road goes from 3,000 feet elevation to a little over 5,000 feet and has MANY spots to stop and take pic. Many of the pics in the links I post a couple pages back are from the Skyway. I highly suggest that you and your group follow us back to Tellico Plains so you can run the Skyway as well, its well worth it and the turns are large sweepers with a many surprises for sure The total lap of Cherahola/Dragon and back is about 140 miles!!! Like I said before, I put a total of 1850 miles on the Crossfire last year, running the Cherahola/Skyway 3x's, the only way to do it


Hector, you put a next to driving my Crossfire, is that because you'll need help getting into it or what Its cramped quarters for someone tall like you, but I think once you get the seat situated, you'll be fine. Then, you can see what all the fun is about in a sports car on the Dragon

Hopefully Warmonger will get the caliper bracket group buy underway and I'll have CSVT front-sized rotors on the rear to replace my current drums. If not, I'll still need to swap over to CSVT rear brakes. I also have most; if not all; SVT suspension components plus a rear sway bar Ross is bringing. I still need new LCA's and one CV boot. I think I have all the bushings/links I need to replace everything that's worn out. 105k miles on the original struts/bushings = a rough ride.

Warmonger's supposed to be working on a caliper bracket kit that allows FSVT 300mm front rotors to fit under stock E0 and E1 wheels. He's also working on a bracket for the rear that'll allow the use of the stock rear CSVT caliper with front CSVT rotors. Larger rotors in the rear without going to a bigger aftermarket kit. Sounds good to me.

open up paint & stretch/skew the image (equally on both axis). Save the reduced image to HD, then send it to your hosting thingy. Easy.

I guess its time for my annual return to the forum! Well this year I have stooped to a level beyond belief. I no longer have the SVT Focus. I sold out for a grocery getter. 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T AWD. Wipe the tear from your eye Roger. I should be able to make this run even though I will prolly be draggin up the rear. But I can still drive it faster than grandma Roger.

Josh, your coming, great As far as driving it faster than me, well with your experience out there you should and if you don't mind, maybe we could swap cars for a run Don't worrry Josh you said it yourself, I drive like a grandma, well compared to your azz BTW, where are you stayin' at down there and do you have any mods done to the Caliber yet

Hector you better be careful, I specifically remember Josh saying he wanted a Rally Red EVO


Josh, what color is your Caliber and what about those mods? I really want to swap cars with you as well so I can see what my car looks like carving the Dragon Now as far as how I drive, well on the Skyway there was NO WAY IN HELL I was going to try and keep up with you, I mean you were in a FSVT and I was in a CSVT and to make matters worse, you've been out there a bazillion time more than me, not to mention your auto-X experience The last thing you want out there is someone who's over confident in their abilities or worse their cars This Dragon trip is really turning into something special for me as I may get to drive (3) different cars out there!!!

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

I havent done any mods to it yet, mainly because there arent any out there for it. As for color it is the metallic maroon color with the premium 18" chrome wheels not the machined aluminum like you see on most the R/Ts. Future mods will probably include some springs to close the fender gap just a bit but other than that it will probably stay stock. Roger you sure can drive my car, as long as I get a run through in the Crossfire. I think you will surprised at the Caliber, it is very nicely damped. It looks like it owuld be a terd in the curves but it is pretty good. The autostick is also a plus.

Oh and Hector no 1AM trips to the hospital this year. Whew what a night.

Josh, you can drive the Crossfire for sure, thanks for letting me run the Caliber on the Dragon! I've been "hinting" at wanting to get out of my lease early and into the the Caliber SRT-4, but between Crossfires sitting on lots longer than cars with pooka-dots and Hector reminding me of how much I liked driving his EVO, I'm just going to stay on coarse, although I'm going to take one for a test drive next spring


Kremit, you too can run a portion of the Dragon in my car as well, but don't slide off the road and if you do, make sure you get out ok and the car is totalled BTW, whats all done to your CSVT again, you are bringing it instead of the Escort, right

Ok so now here is the kicker the wires for one of my o2's right at the harness were frayed so i go and tape up all one at a time. Then i get back to the alt. after noticing i ruined and had to change mega fuse. i was going to do the alt. wiring fix pulled on the wire to get a little slack and it keeps coming till i get a frayed end of it. I figuyre i better chase the end of it down so i can tape it up right? Well i get to where the alt. wires come off the main harness and what do i find?? The green wire off the alt. plug is frayed and still havent found the end of the red wire. So then i cut open the big harness to find nothing but wire insulation(sp) and bare wires everywhere. I don't know what to do now!!!!!!!!!!!!

You always get to a point where you've gotta make a decision...do I keep it and prepare to put some money into it or do I sell it and let someone else do it Thats up to you put seeing that you've already got a Saturn, go and check out the Aura XR and remember this, bring your title with you so you don't have to wait so long to get yourself into it because that car rocks

Keeping a decent used car running is almost always cheaper than getting a new car. Say $500 in repairs and it goes good for 6 months vs. $300-$600 a month for a new car.

Title good luck lol i owe more than anyone would want to on this car. Hell i still have almost 2 yrs left to pay on it I'm trying to get ford to cover it under the recall because of the manufacture date of the car but i cant get anyone important on the phone with cust service I went ahead and ordered the harness i need from bill and it is supposed to be here tomorrow better be cause i paid like 40 extra bucks for overnight!!!! so i guess bright and early i'll be fixing it up and roger the car should be like new by the time you get to drive it. oh and as far as the EVO thing goes. I'd be all over it if i wasn't over my head on this car. and the wife says that the next car will be an automatic for her and then i can have the saturn so i don't know. Checking prices also they are still a lil pricey for me i have a 4 month old and money isn't the greatest but it is a 4dr no i'll wait till my tour is paid for or kicks the bucket totally then look the mitsu way

Chad, you need to change out the pads and try and find some SS brake lines and you'll be all set As far as camping goes, well our cabins have been booked up for some time now, but theres plenty of motels right off I-75 where we get off the freeway and you'd only be about 15 minutes from us, so meeting up every morning at Hardees would be a breeze!

I've got new Hawk pads for her already installed and SS lines don't exist for my car yet.

I think she'll be good to go. Only thing I'd like to do is have a fab shop make up larger diameter front and rear sway bars. 16mm Steel bars ain't [censored] in the handling department.

As for meeting up, I love Hardees. . I've gotta look at some maps and see exactly where ya'll are staying and I'll gauge a good place for myself so I'm good and close.

Bah got a ticket today. I'll try to make it not interfer with the trip but it was 24 over so they can take my license. Also got a stupid tint warning. But considering other things,like having someone else's ID fall out of my wallet with my ID and him asking bout that and me having a bottle of whiskey in the car, I got off light I guess. And he made me late to autox. He was a meanie.

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

Can someone hook Chad up with some motels/hotels in the area and post it here just incase we get Tom (WA2TUFF) to make it down, of old 68 off of I-75, I believe our exit number is 60, but could be 62. The nearest city is called Sweetwater, not to be confused with SweetTea


If Chad goes I will be sucessful in the fact that I got someone from the EGL to finally come to the Dragon with me, well now that I think of it, it appears that John (5speed3.0LSE) is going to be coming down with me instead of my buddy, but we'll see in about a week in half to be sure. The thing is, John needs to see if he's got exams that week and if he doesn't, he's coming down to run the Dragon. MY other buddy, Derek, has other things to worry about, namely his wife being pregnant and due in early December, so its kinda close, besides that he's got see if he's got drill that weekend (he's in the reserve and served in Iraq for a year!) Either way, I'm bringing someone down with me and its going to be a great trip, I can't wait

Only thing that would stop me is the same as John, but I generally have clearance for things like that with propper notice.. like, notifying on the first day of class.

It's cool ROger, I've found a couple places I'm checking into. Now.. the only thing is that I probably won't be coming until Thursday afternoon.. AKA, ariving VERY early Friday morning.. like 3:00 am. So, that's not an issue with me (obviously).. just as long as you all have some info set upo as far as wher eyou guys will all be at at a certain time so i can get there pronto.

And as always, the sooner you guys work that time, place, etc out.. the better the time I have to plan.

If your stayin' at a place at exit 62 Chad the Hardee's by us is alot further away than 5 minutes, even if you were stayin' right off exit 60 and I-75 its longer than 5 minutes away. This Hardees is in Tellico Plains which is E of Sweetwater, about 15 minutes from there. We're lucky, the Hardees isn't even 5 minutes away


Now I'm not calling your out or anything Chad but I'd be remissed if I didn't tell you the golden rules of the Dragon:

-Don't try and be a hero


-Make your first run a "feeling out" process"


-When you've got a bike behind you, wave him past, it will make life better for you and he'll really appreciate it


-Don't outdrive your cars ability, its not worth it as theres always a good amount of cars/bikes out there


-Make sure to check your tires air pressure, brake fluid, trans fluid and oil, it all takes a beating out there



-When in doubt, don't do it!!!

Yes, I and many of the group members will be new to the Deal Gap drive.

I will have to take you up on the offer where photo ops can be had!

We German car owners use Zymol and Zaino.

Now, an update on my group...

We seemed to have attracted a group of 21 drivers (One Audi S6-modified) but I think he understands that he cannot join our group even though we can't keep him from the road.

We have mapped out our drive for the weekend and places to eat.

We have merchandise and a website for participating members of this run.

We will be known as the ' BMW Dragon Slayers '... How original, I know...

I guess that's all for now. I will check in later.

I have no plans to change the wheels.. I honestly don't know of a better wheel that could lok good on this car.. perhaps the Grand Prix GXP wheels... but those bugger's are HEAVY.

I've got a set of stock GT wheels.. form my last G6.. but they have no tires on them and are 17's.. so my current goodyears won't fit on them.

I'm confused.. slightly larger than 18" is 19"... my stock wheels are 18", Roger. Sadly, a good mix of 19" rims available for this platofrm weight LESS than these stockers. . Styling is an A+.. but engineering is a D.

The 19's will fill the wheel wells a wee bit more, I've got the suspension for it.. might as well use it, lol. Ofcoarse this is all speculative.. god knows if I'd even have the time to find them, get them, and mount them in just over a month.

The control is often called the accelerator pedal. Drag racing is poopy anyways.

Let's see if you let off the gas pedal then you will go slower....tell me what's the point of having the power if you can't use it to it's full potential?

Re: Official Fall Dragon Run Oct 13-15th!

Not quite hector. If you're spinning and you modulate the throttle so you don't spin, you will go faster,,, though no, not as fast as you could if you just floored it.
There's no point. So modify your junk so you can use it if you want it.

Few cars, even drag cars can just go all out. They have rev limiters for launching and what not, otherwise they would do the same thing they do when they do a burnout. Good launching, chassis setup, and throttle control come into play with any vehicle with respectable power.

Chad, what kinda of tires you lookin' to put on that car


Zymol and Zaino J/K, can't wait to see all of these cars in person, what a weekend its going to be...AGAIN! BTW, who's my adopted college football team playing that weekend Eric?



I don't follow losing teams, Roger. Actually, I have no idea whatsoever. As for a good pic spot, there are plenty. If all of these millions of cars show up, we'll probably wind up having to line 'em up at the lake; which would make for a great back-drop anyway. I can always climb up rock walls for arial shots.

Thats the spot, let it be said so let it be done


Chad, sorry about the confusion, I mean't lareger size tires, not rims and as far as not having the time, well, just look them up, find the ones your want, give em' your CC number and address and have em' delivered, no problem I really like the stock rims, but if your lookin' to maximize perf, get those light weight rims!

Eh I hit a driveway going 30mph last nite. They said they saw sparks. Hit, went up, came down, hit more. I guess it's ok. It drove home. Weight removal of extra metal off the subframe I guess.

Figuring out who gave Ross a drivers license..

Oh, Roger.. those wheels are ugly (no offense, I appreciate the info).

I've been tooling around the Nissan 350Z sites looking at wheels and pictures to see what styles look really good.. as my Coupe kinda looks like a 350z.

..Too bad it's not, though

Well it was almost sold. Guy was supposed to come yesterday to buy it but didn't. So I had to of course put the car to good use. I was catching a little bit of air on this one dirt road and my lower tie bar was hitting all sorts of junk. It's an escort though, it keeps going and going.

Oo yeah, anyone want to buy it?
