    • 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.

        Ha! Well congrats regardless. The cold weather must have helped a bit too...Looks like you are almost in the 9's, does Steve think there was much more on the table ?

        I told Steve if he had taken a sh1t in the morning that it would have been worth the 2/100's!

        In town for a couple more days. Will call you this afternoon to see what your up to.

        Congrats Earl. That puts you up at the quickest overall M156 record at the quarter mile. Didnt you tap 144mph last time In +4000DA? Did you switch tired/wheels for this run?

        Luke,

        engine revs way too fast to run in auto. As soon as you leave the line you have to shift and then shift again.

        A simple trip to the east coast preferably the northeast and this is easily a 9 second car.
