Wannagofast.com 1/2 mile event pics

Decided to head down South a bit and see what the big deal was about this event. It was hosted at Jumbolair, a fly-in neighborhood that happens to be the home of John Travolta and his big-ass jet. Anyways, it was FUCKING FREEZING, as in 36OMG° when I got there and a high of 43°. Winds were 15-20mph so for Florida, it was miserable. It was just as bad for the drivers, because trying to hook 1500+ horsepower down on a frozen tarmac is damn near impossible. Top speed of the event was 224mph, and from a standing start in 1/2 mile it's impressive as shit to witness. Cars ran side-by side as well so that made it more interesting. Anyways, here's some of the rides I saw. Pretty sure at least 200 cars ran, ranging from SRT-4's to GT-R's to a diesel pickup truck. Good times.

Built charger moving out. Travolta's jet in the background



Underground racing Lambo (pretty much all of them were Twin Turbo setups)



This GT-R was the first to clip 200mph the first day. Thing was a monster.



Mercedes SLS was trapping high 160's, which is insane for a street car



I'm starting to like the Porsches more and more. They held their own at the event and look pretty mean when they get rolling.



The Ferrari definitely didn't compare to any of the Lambos, but I wouldn't kick it out of bed.



Twin-Turbo Lambo of a guy me and my friend know. He hasd never even taken it to the 1/4 mile strip lol. He trapped like 176.



The GT-R's were definitely the most popular platform for this event, and they fucking hauled. The AWD really helped them in the cold.



Couldn't miss this thing



Wasn't hot on the Purple (green is painter's tape for rock chips), but the car soulded healthy as hell.

Hey Hey! Olllllld school. Wasn't fast, but then again they never were (lol Honduh powa). Still a cool looking car though.



This thing..still no idea what it is. Looks MEAN as hell, but was just a basic LSx engine in it.



Soooo much want



Twin Turbo CTS-V that ate it's motor on it's 4th run of the day. Sucks for the guy since that's his third new engine.



Lambo LP610. CLEAN fucking ride.



Lots of ZR1/Z06/Z07 Vettes out there. This thing was murdered out and had a killer stance.



You did WHAT to your Lambo? <facepalm>



1 McLaren made it. It's like a miata, only smaller hehehe.




Just a CNC milled intake and carbon fiber tunnels from Alpha Motorsports. I'm sure it's cheap..

Ahhh, good call. Yeah I think it only did like 126-128 so we were all wondering what would look so cool but be so slow. Kit car would explain it.

Typhoon -- you didn't stick around for VMP's Mustangs? I was aiming to go but found out a bit late notice to shuffle other plans. My neighbor drives (and markets) for VMP -- Justin is an incredibly talented tuner/fabricator.

Justin is a badass in the Ford World, no doubt. The Mustangs just never really showed up on Saturday. I saw at least 3 or 4 Turbo'd Coyotes running and they just kept getting spanked. Granted, traction was non existent, so you had to make a reeeeeal slow runout before you could hammer down. The turbos just spun up too fast in the cold air and they roasted their tires on pretty much every run I saw.

The old "flying M5" incident. What a that kid was. It seems every year someone starts spreading that picture around and saying that the accident happened last year at wannagofast and how dangerous the event is. People believe anything they see on the internet
