• From Silence to Violence - An awesome Weistec supercharged CLK63 Black Series build from Fluid Motor Union

      This is the car we unfortunately missed at SEMA. Luckily, we were able to find great pictures of the build which is simply stunning. The car features a custom exhaust including custom long tube headers. The quality of the welding speaks for itself. A Weistec supercharger kit was installed as well to go with the beautiful exhaust setup. In addition to the performance mods cosmetic pieces (wheels, wing) were added and the final product is simply astounding. An excellent build that shows off the quality of Fluid Motor Union's work inside and out.

        Looks great, not loving the wheels. Are those cheated bends in the header can't really tell but that would be ashame cause it looks like a work of art otherwise

        I'm not sure why it is just sitting in a dealer instead of being driven.

        To each his own but I believe that wing is for function on the track.

        Sticky, never underestimate advertising.

        MB dude in fort myers somehow got my contact details and wants my heap at his dealership. He is willing to ship it out from CA....go figure. I told him no as we have a slight upgrade in the works but perhaps in the new year as I first want to first run a 9 beside Jim. You thought us running 10's was good in vegas, you have not seen anything yet.

        January party booze has been purchased. I now have about 4K in wine and 2K in rum and other hard liquor sitting in the bar. Lots of headaches in store...

        We won't be running the cars but I am pretty sure I can talk Jim/Luke into the florida sunshine and party....

        BTW, Love the FMU car but would love to see some dyno numbers to see how it all works.

        No doubt, just seems like a shame to park this thing and have it sit there.

        Thanks! Due to the super-strict timetables, we weren't able to do any final dyno figures (the car was completed not very long before it had to leave on a transport for SEMA). We free-ran it a few times on the dyno for the video above, but it will be undergoing dyno runs once it's back in Seattle, which I believe is happening this week.

        It's currently hanging out at Fletcher-Jones in Vegas, where it took a two-week-long breather after SEMA. It will be heading back to Seattle soon, where it will be undergoing a good amount of testing (dyno, wind tunnel for EBD/wing efficiency) prior to being run on the track in 2012. There are still a few extra parts to be added on (MOTON suspension, built-in jack system, among other things) before RBM digs into the track driving. The owner of the BS is currently undergoing a good amount of education prior to hitting the track, as well. Never hurts to further your education, haha.

        The wing is for the track, yes. There are going to be two versions of this car -- a Dr. Jekyll for the road, and a Mr. Hyde for the track, if you will. The track-going build will have the Varis wing out back, along with a lightweight wheel/tire setup (the BBS wheels on the car are one of the sets of wheels for the track, and they're currently working on another custom-developed set with ADV.1). The road-going build will use the ADV.10 wheels featured in a majority of the pictures, and will replace the large GT wing with a Vorsteiner trunk lip spoiler for a more subdued look. They bought two trunks specifically for changing out the wing based on the vehicle's function in a given day.

        And regarding the headers, the two pieces are separate from the rest of the setup because we built two of the runners (the same on each side in terms of firing order) to cross banks and connect to the opposite side's collector. It was SEMA, so we decided to go a bit above and beyond the call of duty during fabrication. The V-band clamps are for ease of removal; otherwise, if we'd just welded it up, trying to remove both sides of headers at once would be the single most frustrating thing on the planet, as you wouldn't be able to move each side independently to navigate the tight recesses around the M156.

        Appreciate the kind words, everybody!

        This car is $#@!ing sick. The wing might be a little too much but I would still rock it. Great job!

        from the inside camera. I really dont see it being aggresive. It doesnt pick up speed like a supercharged 63 should. was the software written by Weistec or was it the moron that FMU work with?

        Whoa there, they installed the Weistec kit which comes with the Weistec software. What is with the talk about a "moron" that FMU works with?
