• New M156 (63 AMG) overall 1/4 mile record - Weistec supercharged W209 CLK63 AMG Black Series goes 10.01@139

      Congratulations to Weistec Engineering and BenzBoost member ecampbell for setting a new M156 1/4 mile world record with a 10.01@139 pass. Yep, incredibly close to a 9 second run and breaking into the 9's is clearly the next step. The 60 foot is not yet known (1/4 mile slip needs to be posted) but the car is hooking well as it improved on its previous 10.212@144.61 with the trap speed dropping likely due to a better launch as well as it being a different track (Famoso).


      This vehicle is now the quickest and fastest M156 V8 in the world and overall the fastest Mercedes in the world. The quickest overall Mercedes title still belongs to Renntech with their SLR which ran 9.68@142.

      Congratulations again to Weistec Engineering and @ecampbell on the new record, video below.

        Man, the delay on the shifts is just unbelievable. Watch the driver hit the paddle and then wait for the shift.

        Sorry buddy. There is troll over on mbwurld who wants to the the slip but I have no intention on letting him see. He trolls over here once and awhile so best to remove.

        We all saw how the car went on the video so the time slip is no so important...

        I think I know who you are referring to, no biggie. Just wanted to confirm my 60 foot assumption and I did.

        Awwww you mad bro? Don't say things like that, you might hurt my feelings. Look at you all heated about a little internet spat. Enjoy your suspension. Ill enjoy mine, I was thinking on quitting forums for lent anyhow as they are a big time suck. You were as much of a douche and a troll in that thread as I was.

        Bring your car to MIR. Enough of the tough guy BS. What are you in high school? I'm sure we will sort it all out once we meet. If you guys want 9's MIR will be the place to do it. I was thinking on going to the No Fly Zone the weekend before with the Vette as well. Im sure ill see you at one of them.

        Ok, well I am not going to take the bait and let you ruin another one of Earls threads so feel free to post all you want but you will look like the douchebag, not me.

        That is my final post addressing you in this thread, goodbye.

        Honestly I was just clearing the air. No hard feelings as it was a stupid internet spat. You seem to be really angry over it. Like I said, you were as much of a douche as I was in the thread. Take a look at MBW now though. It would seem more also share my opinion.

        Either way, if you wanna be mad be mad. Congrats again Earl. Sorry to mud up your other thread, but it was just my opinion.

        Dude - do you think you could start a thread for your taunts in the Off-topic subforum?
        How about leaving this thread for a discussion on ecampbell's fine accomplishment?

        Ya, those guys were out there on Saturday, the Berger Motordsports guys I beleive. They just missed getting into the 10's and we just missed getting into the 9's. DA was great for the west coast, it was as low as +385 at one point late in the afternoon.

        Wait so now you only needed to be on MBWorld yesterday because you "had to" for whatever bull$#@! reason...otherwise you wouldn't have been posting in that thread ? LOL!!! Dude you're excuses are pure comedy - do you realize how $#@!ing stupid you sound ?? And now, after you get suspended.....oh, you were gonna quit the forums anyway cause they take up too much of your time ?? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! Another great excuse...dude you're about as full of $#@! as the Carnival Triumph !!!!!
        And what is even better is that you talk $#@! about this forum how it's filled with drama, yet what do you do as soon as you get suspended over there ?? You come here using another screen name !!!!!! LOL!!!!!!! One big ass walking contradiction is all you all man. Oh and by the way it's against the rules here to use multiple accounts so I'm sure this one will get hammered pretty soon but the fact that you keep doing it after talking so much $#@! about this place is pure comedy!!! What a $#@!ing tool you are.
