Anybody on here go to the Nelson Ledge Fun Days in Ohio? I am thinking about going to a couple this summer. Just curious how it is and if anybody is a regular. Thanks!

Yes, there are a few of us. If you haven't been on a road course, there is a first timers' class w/ instructor. Usually, drivers are separated into 2-3 groups depending on experience. Track condition itself is mediocre, but, cost is also relatively in-expensive compared to mid-Ohio & other area tracks.

All in all, it's a good time. Bring helmet, long sleeves, remove loose items in car & not required, but, a good idea, wear a neck ring. Add an extra quart of oil. True oil temp gauge will help, as well. Once she gets above 235*-240*F you'll want to run 15W-50 while on track. On track oil temps can elevate to 300*F.

Why do I recognize your tag name? Might know you.

Ok thanks for the advice and tips. Not sure how you know me, I am from the Akron area and I drive a black SS. Hope to be at Nelson Ledges on the 3rd of June....

Either through our group up north (Mentor), through some of the guys in OhioLSX, or from Superfly. Pretty sure we've met. If I heard your name, would know for sure.

My name is JT, but I'll keep my last name off for now, haha. I have been to superfly before, but only like twice randomly.

Hmmm...maybe I haven't met you. Thought for sure we had. Anyway, am sure we will cross paths sooner or later; possibly @ Nelson.

Our group is hoping to go to the new 1 mile strip in Wellington this season. If interested, I can send you a PM once we get the details figured out.

Let me know about the 1 mile strip, that'd be fun! I have a buddy with a new 5.0 who would get a kick out of a 1 mile drag too.
