    • New world's quickest and fastest Mercedes record - Renntech SLR runs 9.68@142

      Congratulations to Renntech who raised the bar to a whole new level. This Renntech tuned SLR was the first Mercedes to break into the 9's with a 9.76@140 and now they have taken the record to 9.68@142. It is important to keep in mind this was done at PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway) in Florida so in colder weather and at a different track this is definitely a mid 9 second capable car. Changes from the previous runs include a larger throttle body and redesigned headers. Absolutely incredible work, congratulations to Renntech.

        Regardless - there is someone who owns that site....and that INDIVIDUAL owns the car.

        i don't think i said that......wait , let me go back and check........

        mmmm.....nope , not what i said . i just said that it would be more impressive if it was privately owned and used and funded by 1 individual . take a look at the site and it says it's a "team collaboration project" , which means it's not funded by 1 private individual for the build . the title to the car may have 1 guys name but hes not the person funding the whole project .

        now , after all that.....congrats , to all involved , in making this SLR a monster

        How do you know that ? How do you know it's NOT one guy funding it all ? The site can use whatever verbage they wish but unless you have firsthand knowledge then I'd say you are simply assuming.

        It isn't owned by them they just use it for advertising. That site is full of posers.

        Sent you a PM that I think explains what happened. Sorry, obviously I didn't intend to remove anything.

        i'm not trying to argue with you . i think we can both agree that this car has a lot of free goodies on it for promotional purposes from all the companies involved in the build .

        i want to see Jim's car come out and stay right with this thing or smoke it Click here to enlarge

        i give all the credit in the world to Renntech for building this monster Click here to enlarge
        Great to see people mod their cars, especially an SLR.

        I heard that the SLR is owned by a weathly individual that is spending his own money to have it modded. He is just playing in a different league than most.

        BTW, who are Jim, Keith and Earl?

        I would suspect Jim, Keith and Earl (whoever they are) are spending their money in the same way the SLR owner is spending his money (he is just spending more) buying headers, camshafts, ported heads, ECU tunes, drag radials, wheels, etc... from manufacturers/tuners as well. I doubt they are whittling a camshaft out of billet in their backyard under a shade tree. Everybody who mods their car is spending money.

        Well Keith is Dads63 who holds the M156 record at the moment.

        Jim and Earl both have CLK63 Black Series getting some custom Weistec treatment. You can learn more in the M156 section.
