early

It's april 10th and I am 99.5% sure new jersey is not off winter blend yet.
However daytime temperatures have lifted considerably to maybe create the illusion that winter blend is gone.
I could be wrong tho.
Also...The whole state of New Jersey has oxygenated(ethanol blended) fuels according to this thread (summertime ethanol requirement it seems)
I think the requirements in the state are only for higher evaporative content for your winter blend. Maybe your winterblend actually has more energy content than your summer!

probably high teens, it

probably high teens, it really depends though... are you good at following the racing line? Wait is this a track with corners or just a straight line? Because straight line in my honest opinion are a waste of time and I rather get the same rush in a go kart or something..

that's why go kart racing is the bomb, its a twisty track, feels very fast (although top speed is 30mph) and no wear and tear on your own car and only 10 bucks a race (10 laps, if your pro you get 30 seconds per lap although my best was 32)


annd the best part go karts are rear engine drive, so its drifting heaven and boy the steering really tires out your arm after two races.

i just want to see what the car is capable of, also with quarter mile, the quicker its over the more fun it is. however with auto-x you can really have fun with any car, or truck for that matter. its a much different rush.

however i wont be auto-xing till june....

norton: great chart! but that chart says nj in sin the rfg zone, which requires ethanol or mtbe. ny and ct are the ones that specifically require ethanol. if there is more power in the nj gas then it will be quite a pleasant surprize.
