Anyone know of any good tunnels/underpasses in the area?

I think that I may have discovered my new favorite pasttime...accelerating through tunnels in second gear. Its incredible how great and metallic even the stock exhaust sounds in these conditions. Does anyone know of some good longer tunnels that are around here? Unfortunately I don't think there will be any like those that exist in the Alps, but you can always hope.

Big dig? You can always pay the turnpike authority to tempt fate in the tunnel out to the airport.

True, but you will probably be listening to a semi instead.

The West Virginia turnpike has a few tunnels, but it is a bit of a drive...

I do this in the Midtown and Holland tunnels all the time. Im really hated as I slow down to about 20 and let a 200-300 ft lead out a head of me. Then I gun it 2nd. haha.


All while being topless por su puesto.

If you like it with the stock exhaust, try it with a performance exhaust....very exotic and even more metallic.

there's a good underpass in newton, right by 30/128. it's only as long as 128 is wide, so you can't even go through a full gear, but it gets very little traffic
