Where in the Chicago land area do you test your tunes/mods?
I am looking for a stretch of road where I can launch and let her run say to 90+ with out the likelihood of getting caught.

My test road is I-90..lol

Get on late at night, stop at bottom of the on ramp and launch away, and get off at the next exit, cross over and get right back on going back and do it all over again till i get back to my exit. Its alot easier then worrying about cops on the main roads. I can get 2 runs in 5 minutes and get off like nothing ever happened. :)

Yea its alot easier, no potholes, worrying about cars coming off the side streets, and its alot easier to do a run on the eway then a 35-45mph road...

Not that I speed or anything I always keep it under 55mph....as long as im in 2nd gear. :)

I agree 88west its the best rd to open it up after Lake st or Orchard RD. exits just 2 lanes & you get to test how the govener goes pass !55MPH :eek:

well i know but its pretty close, 1st ave turns into cumberland about 4 miles down, i just dont think speeding down the expressway is a good idea, 88 west though is a good place to do it like everyone else says.
