lol, ohio is not really very close to NJ man. you also named 2 drag strips. i dont think he is lookin for drag strips but if you are check out englishtown (old bridge township raceway park) and atco raceway
Pretty boring. Big tall mountain cliff and trees on one side, tiny cliff ditch thing on the other, long straight aways, only a few turns.
But all the little mountain and canyon roads it connects to, fun. Lots of mountain/canyon roads full of turns to put your suspension to use. I hate to describe it like this, but it's like that one track in GT3, or, ugh, hating more to compare to it, but the anime was cool, but ever heard of Initial D? But people go up for all sorts of reasons.
But so many factors, wildlife, road conditions, possible on coming cars, places that are getting patroled and whatnot, plus just flying off a cliff or head on into a mountain. But there are tons of roads out there that aren't heat yet, but can be if people crash up there or the place gets blown.
But there's definately a lot of California roads you could run spiritedly, something to follow instead of cones in a parking lot.
