    I've never done such things but would like to enjoy at least 1 day in May and then Sep.

    I've 305 DR on order and thinking to get DS soon

    Where are you going from? I am contemplating but it's an 800 mile drive from Miami.

    There is one in Virginia in May as well. Planning to go. I have been told that I should not use DR without also replacing the drive shaft. I have a 2015 late August build M6. Any thoughts?

    If you have the stock clutch I would skip the DRs. I may just wait to do one of these events until I can get an aftermarket clutch in. It would suck to be so far from home with a roasted clutch.

    Thanks. First time out so may just run stock. Have the summer tires. A buddy thought I should see 150's with a reasonable launch.

    I got A8 so don't have to worry about Clutch... Only DriveShaft... .. I got DR because I'm planning to Atlanta MotorSport Park in April with one of my friend (he's a pro racer and planning to get instructor license so he can sit with me and help me out)

    I ran at Ocala bone stock with the summer tires, M6, and ran 146. It was 30 degrees and traction off the line was nonexistent. It was a blast though!

    Sounds good. I have the exact set-up and in May should be more like 70's so sounds like 150's are about right. It was in 30's today in Va Beach and agree tires are slippery. Running a little hard down the road spun going from 2nd to 3rd.

    Nice. I got A8 and All season tires. But by May, I might need new tires so I've ordered DR tires and might need DS for that.

    Bob,

    I'm 100% coming for Saturday and of course it depends if I get the entry since I'll be glue to my pc in the morning.

    I've never run it before and it'd be nice to meet fellow Hellcat member and learn tricks hehe
