    This Saturday I attended my first WannaGoFAST event in Clayton GA. The beautiful Smokey Mountains and Heaven's Landing Airstrip was the setting for a great day of 1/2 Mile racing.

    In May the A8 Hellcats were hitting low 150mph, with mine being the M6, I was hoping to hit 145mph. It wasn't to be, all the Hellcats ran a little slower than May. I managed a 141mph, while I believe the fastest stock A8 ran 149. A Sublime A8 with 100shot ran 153 I believe...

    I managed 6 runs during the day, Ford Lightening (Win), CTSV (Win), Viper (Loss), G8 GT (Loss), Shelby GT500 (Win), Charger SRT (Win).

    It was a fantastic day and I cannot wait to do it again! Below are some photos and videos of the event, I have more work to do on videos, so more to come. I've not posted all the photos in this thread, but they can be seen at this Flickr link:

    Here is a little video of Mopar on Mopar action vs. a 1000hp 6.lL Charger SRT, he was having problems all day and let off the gas.

    For what it's worth I only manage 137 mph on the standing 1/2 mile at the Smith Falls event. Probably would have run a 140ish with my M6 on the last run but my miss shift from 4th to 3 1/2 caused a slightly lower speed...:oops:

    I have to assume the high altitude hampered me somewhat. But I wasn't too upset with the speed. I ran a 137 and 136 when I missed 3rd or was slow into 5th. These darn M6's!! I wouldn't have it any other way though!

    I found I didn't 6th gear for the 1/2, but not a chance of doing it all out in 4th.

    That was a typo! I meant 5th gear! Yeah, no way of getting to 6th unless your shifting way too soon!
