Car #396 Cheatee Cheatee Bang Bang is in for our second race. The car ran great at NHMS, so we are giving her a quick once over. The stick was moving all over the place so I'll try and re-bush the worn out linkage. We're also adding some niceties that we didn't have for our first race (Radio, cool suit, power to go-pro, etc.)   Fortunately we have a nice place with a lift to work on her until the end of the month!  We'll be in garage #120 so stop in and say hi.

Change you plate style linkage to newer one and you should be good.   I might have a spare late model E30 hanging in garage.  If not there are plenty of E30's at the yards in Billerica.

We are in again with our e36 running US Air Farce  logo's

When's the englishtown thing?  We ran an enduro there a few years ago.  The dirt stock guys w/ the mad max exoskeletons on their cars were actually trying to hit the T bird.  I was run off on the straights trying to pass several times.  After the 30 minute break, we decided to go home.


I am going on March 23rd to take there class so I can get their license ($225 for 8 hour day class/track)... Using my wife's DD for that. Then I will have the Cortina there on April 6th.  11am-5pm for Open track. $125 for 6 hours.  I believe that's the car and 1 driver... I need to email and see if they will let a second (e-town licensed) driver run in the same car and if so, what's the extra fee... My 3 A&D's are all first timers so if I can get them a little more seat time on top of Friday practice it's worth it...


I would love to see another Lemon car there to get an idea of pace... What class are you guys?

It depends on the vehicle, 2 a's and a c.  We'd be bringing 1 of the a's if it's beginning of april.

The Carbeque SAAB will be low n slowing it at Jersey!  In the middle of a takedown/reseal.  Engine out and back in this week hopefully.  Can't afford a new transmission so the very suspect grindy one will have to do.  Here's to changing the fluid and praying!

What layout are they planning?  Has anyone heard yet?

Yes that is what I was asking about.  I didn't see which layout it was,  Lightening/Thunderbolt.   Thanks for clarification.

Re: Real Hoopties of NJ 2014 - Who's in?

There are two optional corners listed on the trackmap - 2b and 3b.

I've never seen anyone use 2b and IMO it's too dangerous to use with people using pit in and out constantly.

If they don't use 3b, then the straights going into and out of 3 become faster and, again IMO, the track becomes much more boring.

edit: answered the wrong question.

Turbo taxi is in. new ignition system (switching to coil on plug) and new head gaskets and a valve lapping. We also have to route the exhaust out from under the car, which is going to suck.

Bert One will be re-taking the East Coast by storm after his winter out west and interstitial race at Gingerman in April.

NJMP was our best race last year (7th overall) so of course this year we'll likely try to do better and blow up in spectacular fashion of some sort. Man we burned through a lot of gas at Thunderbolt last year, too. Better make sure the gas rebate credit card is fully paid off before race weekend.

Great to see our buddies the Keystone Kops will be there. Will the Cheetah Volvo guys be spinning tunes Saturday night again like last August?

Quick questions for those who ran thunderbolt last year:

1. Pits: hot pit or pit in your parking spot?
2. Electrical hookups, are they plentiful or do you have to be far away like at Lightning?
