Anybody have a favourite spot with lots of winds and hills? Somewhere to really test out the 'ol gear box. Something really fun and challenging?

forks of the credit river in halton hills is wicked! nice switchback... little far from TO tho.
I'll second that one for sure. I was out there for the first time a little while ago...amazing is the best way to describe it.

a friend and i rented a 911cab for a day 2 yrs ago and spent several hrs in that area. the roads are really fun once you get to know them... just make sure you go when there isnt a lot of traffic. oakville area has one or two nice stretches too.

i cant remember the website, but we found a motorcycle website that had abt 15 different rides in s. ontario. it even rated the rides. i just tried looking and couldnt find it.

man, best spot to drive in all of Ontario, The Lakeshore! the dam indy is there for a reason. 3am-5am, best driving in the world. my buddy hit 260 in his G35 coupe for at least 10 seconds.

I'd have to say the DVP at night (when there is no traffic) and if you like the winding roads, try downmills rd between Eglinton and O'Conner Dr. It winds up through the DVP and up the bluffs right before the road ends at O'Conner. Gives you a good rush, but if your not familiar with the road, I'd say drive it normally first cause there are quite a few sharp turns.

Rosseau, Ontario, about 3 hours North of Toronto has lots of little twists and hills and turns etc. All the roads were repaved last year too. :D I have some in laws there that we visit as often as possible, where my big boat was ugly in the turns, the hatch comes alive and i'm asked to slow down a lot :p

Were you with your buddy when he hit 260? Whats that about 160 mph? hard to believe. What stretch of the Lakeshore? Need a lot of road ditance to get up to that speed before any lights or curves..

I was wondering to myself, "I wonder if there's a list of common speed traps out there?"

Well duh - obviously someone must've thought the same thing... and then this site came about (Ontario index list):

http://www.speedtrap.org/speedtraps/ste_city.asp?state=ON

Here's the Toronto list - includes a few places I'm well aware of, such as the Lakeshore...

http://www.speedtrap.org/speedtraps/ste.asp?state=ON&city=Toronto

Note that the Toronto list doesn't include all traps - go to the Ontario Index and check out the other Toronto (Etobicoke, Scarborough, etc.) traps

For touge style I recommend Snake Road near Hamilton/Burlington area. It is about 1 hour drive from Toronto, 45 mins from Toronot Downtown and 30 mins from Mississsagua.

Over Snake Road you can easily meet some 350z and s2000 having fun. But please drive safe buddy! Police might around also.
