    The fastest Bandit Runner to make an entire Bandit Run with us is likely Mr. Clint Heigis (1fastws6) from the 2008 Bandit Run! Check out this video... 1/4 mile at 10.92 at 127.87 MPH naturally aspirated... no NOS!!

    We missed Clint on this year's run! Wow! Now that is one fast WS6 - 6 speed!!!

    Loon ,

    If I recall in Pidgeon Forge you were bookin it across the parking lot in a rather UNIQUE fashion.

    I do seem to recall that... Not sure it was the fastest tho!

    Too bad no one had a camera to record that saunter across the parking lot! scratchchin image

    Hey D....don't be so sure! I think Adam had a camera rolling, capturing the rare "Loon" gracefully crossing the parking lot that night eyebrow image

    (We have to get that clip!!!)

     

    Imagine the possibilities

    Greg, for me my heart starts pumping as the lights go down the tree... and then pedal to the metal!!!!! I have to tell ya - 1fastws6 is the fastest street car I have ridden in. Guys talk about their cars pinning you to the seat... that is an understatement in Clint's. Most new-stock WS6 4th gens with a decent driver (that means not me) run in the 13's thru the 1/4 mile. It costs alot of time and $ to go 3-4 seconds faster! What gets me is that the car does it without Nitros and the video we saw was the first pass. That is a BAD RIDE!

    I guess Clint's ears are burning from Iraq or Iran or Afgan... or wherever he is stationed these days! God Bless!

    I must of missed Clints run. My car ran down the strip 3 times and was always faster than his. Still have my time slips. I'm planning to do the run this year so We'll have to see if Clint shows.

     

    How's this thing go back together???

    Hey, good to hear from you! I remember you and Clint duking it out on the road and him grumbling about your nitrous! LOL! Glad you are stateside again! We look forward to seeing you again and that Beastly car of yours!

    As far as racing...You'll get your opportunity hopefully at either West Palm Intn'l Raceway or Disney's! Deb is working on it! wink image

    Sounds good. I see from some of last years videos there were more 4th Gens that there has been in the past. So I'm looking forward to seeing what they have done and getting some new ideas for my car. I'm afraid it will always be a work in progress up till the day that I purchase another strictly as a race car.
