    • Video of the record setting Mercedes 1/4 mile pass by Dads C63

      The video just went up of the record setting Mercedes 1/4 mile run by DadsC63. Car has MHP mods along with a 125 shot of nitrous. It is surprising to see just how smooth and drama free the launch is. The car pull strong through the 1/4 setting a new Mercedes trap speed record. This is officially the quickest and fastest Mercedes in the USA. Congratulations to MHP and DadsC63.

        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

        Last I recall the controller was set to 50% at 3000rpm but not off the converter. Trying not to kill it too quickly. Click here to enlarge Definitely hurting our short times. Not sure if I've mentioned this or not yet but on the 160 shot pass (missed 3-4 aborted, 10.58@123) the 1/8th trap was 107mph vs 105mph for the 125 shot, that would've been a 139-140 run.

        Also you can hear the 3-4 short shift on the 10.41@135.4 run, can't blame Ben amazing he can hit the 1-2, 2-3 they happen so quickly. Just goes to show there's more in the combo without going higher. All this without cams. Yes we are still working on the software.

        Thanks

        You can hear the car come out N/A then the spray hits and it rockets off.

        Same here... 140 mph seems plausible, that is some serious power.

        I must say, I'm very impressed with what you guys have accomplished thus far. I didn't think the C63 would be able to run with the boosted M3's.

        How about a direct port 200 on a p31? And you should spray yours you'll go 140s for sure with a 100 hit

        Now that is picking them up and puttin down!! A really big effort from Andrew's SL 65 AMG & Keith's C-63 And of course Andrew from MHP for his tuning efforts should not go unrecognized. Guy's , I believe your are seeing what may come in the future on MPH's effort to get back into the other Mercedes engine platforms. As Time passes it helps us understand each others characters . MHP may have had a rough start, But has learned to temper his emotions. I too started in alittle rough and have needed to ease up & did so. Andrew Has helped me more than most of you guy's could Know
        Again Great Job you Guy's _PTEngineering

        Pat,

        Thank you for the kind words, the outstanding business relationship, and most importantly for being a solid friend. For those of you that don't know Pat he is one of the most repsected MB owners on the net for a reason, the man knows what he's talking about and it shows in everything he does. From his products to his own car, Pat is a total first class act.

        Thanks bud!
