Topic: new jersey racing

All the years we have been racing the Lemons race at NJMP its always been on the thunderbolt track.
Any idea why it was changed to the lightning course? Anyone race on this course?
Certainly not complaining. Hell, itll be fun trying a dif track

Re: new jersey racing

They changed track because the date changed and this was the available track for the date they had in mind. 

We used to race on lightning.  It's OK, not my favorite.  Bring front wheel bearings.  The 'lightbulb' tends to lift the inside wheel (right front) and vibrate it enough that it breaks bearings.  That turn also will oil starve cars that are not ready for it.  There is also turn 7 that catches a lot of people out.

We got screwed at The Real Hoopties of New Jersey  and we took cars down with us.
We got the curse at Capitol Offense but they wouldn't let us destroy the car.

It also likes to blow up engines running flat out down the main straight.
