    @@@ shopHemi.com & Pedders USA Present The Road Course Challenge Round 2! @@@

    Well kiddies as Dan and I have posted in a few different areas we have started work on the 2nd event at New Jersey Motorsprts Park on Thunderbolt.

    Pedder USA and Shophemi.com/Arrington Engines have once again stepped up to the plate to support this event.

    We had a great time last year, had a great group of people on track and everything I have heard back about the instructors has been outstanding.

    So what are we going to change from last year ? Not a whole lot

    We will be running a Meet & Greet AT NJMP on Sunday March 28th 2010 there maybe a AutoX set up, we are still working on all the details on this. This will most likely be held over at the Lighting Course parking lot where Pedder USA did the skid pad testing.

    This will allow people who can't make the race to see this awesome facility, M&G and maybe play a little with their cars on the AutoX. Also we are hoping the the supporting vendors will set up booths, have product to show off and let you all fondle and maybe some ride along's in preped cars.

    After this we will wander over to the lodge for some general BS'ing and bench racing.

    On Monday March 29th 2010 we will be out on the Tunderbolt Course !





    Thunderbolt Raceway featuring over 2.25 miles of asphalt, 14 challenging turns, a one half mile straightway and approximately 40 acres of full service paddock space.

    We will also be contracting Hook on Driving for instructors again this year. The Goal is to have close to 20 instructors, a class room segment and the Track Marshal.

    We will be limiting it to about 60 cars again, 3 run groups about 5 session per group.

    We will again be looking to supply a hot lunch and some breakfast goodies.

    Door prized etc to be determined.

    Group Buys are being working on already and I am chasing down leads on tires, wheels, brakes, and other assorted goodies.

    I have this post across several different car forums again, so expect to see GTO's G8's New Camaros and a slew of the Japanese & Euro cars we had last time ( M3's, M5's 911 Turbos, GT3's , S2000, GR-R, Subies etc).

    Cost : It always comes down to this Everything we get from sponsors goes to making this event less costly for YOU, Our Goal is to keep it UNDER $275, this event's cost is a bit higher than last years ( more track workers, more instructors & Class room segments ). So the more help we get the lower the price will be across the board. It also falls to how many people we get signed up, If we fill out the 60 cars we will be golden, if we only have 45 cars well.... there will be lots of space to work on your lines and not get run over LOL

    We treat our sponsors good they treat us good !

    Judging by the amazing success of the first event, this one should be off the charts!

    you sure as $hit better buy better brakes this time. And cut out the competitions for top speed on the straight. This course will bite you hard if you get careless. Lightning was a lot more forgiving of many peoples first time out.

    If I remember correctly, the issues that popped up with the LX cars were power steering pumps and brake pads. As A reminder, running a street car on the track takes some close inspection and some upgrades. But it is well worth it!!

    The only big issue with pads were guys running them down to the metal backers

    The PS pumps are a known weak point covered in depth by Matt Robertson in the Frankencooler series of post.

    I was thinking pads and rotors just to get home with if I snap a rotor. Thunderbolt is gonna push brakes ALOT more than Lightning ever did. I used the engine alot on lightning, brakes are gonna get hot on thunderbolt.

    I think I might have to unless I go for ANOTHER set of wheels.
    I will be doing a brake upgrade for sure.
