    A friend of mine was telling me about this long stretch of road with alot of twisties called Dragon's Tail that runs between Tennesse and North Carolina. Ive seen a map (along with points where people bit the big one >.<;) So has anyone been on it?

    On a local forum down here I know a few guys were talking about going up there and say it's a lot of fun. They have an annual thing. I was going to go, but I couldn't get off of work for a week. :(

    I have been on it a lot! :) And its the Tail of the dragon, 318 curves in 11 miles. Lancer did awesome, even on the stock suspension. It was definitely a fun drive, that i enjoy. It's only an hour away so we usually go often, sometimes hang out at Fontana Dam, or Santeelah beach (Lake). There are some crazy drivers, i know because i am one of them (sometimes), if you're not behind a slow car it is balls to the wall, using both lanes, and just looking out ahead to make sure there is no oncoming traffic, plus motorcycles passing you in curves at insane speeds. It is ridden by many different groups up and down the east coast, and even farther out. I have more pics... somewhere. But here are a few.
