Had a great time at the event this weekend! This was my first time doing a 1/2 mile and its definitely a different beast than the 1/4. VMP Tuning and Van Collier helped me out all weekend so big thanks to them. A lot of learning and a brutal crosswind on Saturday got me a best of 159. Then I came out Sunday and knocked out a 167 and 169.

Snapped a pic of the Lambo they pulled out of the water. Sad sight.

Nice times.....any videos of ur runs?

I dont have any but some are out there. My buddy in the white TT coyote picured dragged me down the runway lol. He trapped 166 to my 169.

10mph difference is huge what did u change up and what are ur mods 169 in standing 1/2 is no slouch

Playing with tire pressure made a big difference, seat time and no crosswind on day 2.

Think he was around 150. If it's the same one i'm thinking of.

Nice #'s. How did the Hellcat fare?

Auto did 152. Manual did 141.

The runs are from a dig right? Surprised the hellcats didnt do better.
But this is a different location and not from a roll. Hellcats posted on here are beating cars with same power but around 1000lbs less weight.

Man op, i put my headphones on expecting to hear your car blast down the 1/2! lol

Just noticed you are at 8xxrwhp, thats impressive for the TT 5.0 to be close to you. Unless its on a built motor. TT 5.0s with stock motors usually max about 700rwhp.

The tune i ran this weekend was a little more conservative than the 820+ tune. But yeah his car is very impressive. He has driver mod too. He's always posting vids in here but i dont know his screen name off the top of my head.

I was there as well and if I'm not mistaken, I think we raced once saturday afternoon. This was the first event like this that I've been to and I thought it was very well done. I can't ever recall having seen as many fast cars in place in my life. We drove 350 miles to get there and it was worth it all and more.

If I'm not mistaken. That red lambo lost traction at the end of a run on saturday, spun out and took out the timing lights. He ran again yesterday and the wing flew off the back taking part of the rear fascia with it. The driver returned, pulled the rest of the rear bumper off and took off again. I guess the car really didn't like that so it spun out again and went into the water. There were a lot of cars there this weekend, but I think that's the way it played out.

Is the Lamborghini driver an idiot?
