    So I thought I'd make this thread since I know several of us run the 1/2 mile and it may become a good thread for info and for us to power adder guys to bounce ideas off each other in regards to speeds, fuel etc! Hope the mods don't mind?

    With this said I'm looking forward to the wannagofast 1/2 mile in May, in Charlotte, NC. Hopefully going to get a carbon driveshaft, bigger Ice tank and a smaller pulley on race fuel to see what it will really do! Anyone else going to this one?

    With 750whp and 3.73 gears, I topped out at 160 in 5th before end of 1/2 mile and shifting to 6th was useless. I'll probably swap to 3.31 next year.

    What tires/wheels are better suited for these 1/2 mile events. I don't think my 17 racestars with mt et street r and skinnies up front are the best option lol. Planning on go to my first one in about two weeks. Thanks guys

    ET street is fine. Just run a good speed/load rated front tire.

    Running factory Pirellis. Traction won't be an issue at the start. Roll into it and then smash it!

    Anyone doing any aero mods? Thinking about a front splitter and gt350 track pack spoiler but not sure if it would slow me down?

    There's something so satisfying about seeing a 30k car with probably 10k worth of mods run away from a Lambo. Even if it's still a Mustang and their driving a Lambo...

    Curious about this as well. Been wanting to put a wing on the car but been holding off because not sure how it will affect handling. I think even wings that aren't designed to be functional will drastically change how the car handles at 170+

    Picked up my Sai Li fuel system last night and got my 72mm Pulley in last week! Only thing left is injectors and this girl going to be turnt up!

    Also registered for the 1/2 mile last week. It's May 20th so I have a good bit of time to get everything sorted out!

    I'm all signed up for the WannaGoFast outside of Charlotte next month, can't wait. I trap 152+ in the qtr, on 20's and 20-21psi, I now have a set of Welds (100lbs lighter) and I'll be turning the boost up a few psi, should see 185'ish. No aero mods, cage, or chute.....
