    • New Overall US Mercedes 1/4 mile record and new C63 AMG M156 record - 10.4@135

      We wish to offer up congratulations to Dads63 (Keith) and MHP for raising the bar for Mercedes performance to the highest level it has been set in the United States thus far. Today at Maryland International Raceway Keith set the record in his C63 AMG with a 125 shot running a 10.4@135. On a 75 shot he ran 10.6@133. This improves on the previous overall US record by 1/10 and 2 mph which was held by an S600 on nitrous.

        Previous record was held by Ahmad 10.57 at like 128.9...no nos.

        Some amazing stuff went down today. Those c63s are $#@!ing incredible to put it bluntly. It kills me all the time and money we have put into making the e55s fast..and the c63s come along and do this kind of stuff. I mean mid 11s on just tune...are you kidding me? That is unreal. Again, major congrats to all parties involved!

        How is resale on these things? I want to buy one for about 2 months then unload it for a Gallardo. I would Do a MHP tune my own headers and exhaust and a 200 shot on a p31

        Don't know if you can just do a 200 shot on a P31. There still are the torque limits but hey, would like to see someone try.

        This is a great development though. Wonder why the 125 shot only provided around 5 mph though?

        200 direct port is comparable to a 100shot non direct in abuse to the motor!

        I'm not talking about abuse, talking about torque limits.

        I'm impressed with how smooth he launches out of the hole, no drama. He's squeezing out the hole right?

        I'm not sure but based on the sound it's as if the nitrous doesn't kick in til after the launch. You can hear the sound of the motor change. I wouldn't want to spray alot of nitrous at low rpms regardless
