• New World's Fastest Mercedes-Benz - Weistec Engineering supercharged CLK63 AMG Black Series breaks the Mercedes 1/4 mile record

      Congratulations to Weistec Engineering as well as BenzBoost member jrcart whom this supercharged W209 CLK63 AMG Black Series belongs to. At the ATCO (New Jersey) drag strip the car managed a very fast 9.757@151.95 breaking the previous trap speed record of 144 miles per hour which was also held by Weistec. The record was broken by almost 8 miles per hour showing a healthy horsepower difference.

      The record for quickest Mercedes-Benz still belongs to Renntech as they hit a 9.68 elapsed time. ET in the 1/4 mile is based on the launch, traction, and conditions so a less powerful car can run a quicker ET and a more powerful car can run a slower ET depending on these factors.

      Regardless, there is enough power here for what on paper would work out to high 8 second capability. The Weistec twin screw supercharged M156 V8 appears to be putting out over 1000 wheel horsepower at this time (a dyno graph will come at a later date). No doubt quicker times will come in time but for now we have a new World's Fastest Mercedes-Benz. Congratulations to all involved, enjoy the video below.

        Just ridiculous. I love the look with the drag wheels. I would pull up to a fine dining establishment just as she sits with the drag wheels and all. I might even leave the chute on lol

        I was a house keeper at night. But my Valets had a closed in parking garage with no exit. Just into the garage and out of the garage right where drop off and pick up was. So they basically didn't get to drive any of the cars.

        But they did make decent tips when it came to the really nice/high end cars. Averaged out to be 16$ an hour plus the min wage rate they made.


        You were fired because....????

        If my trans was complete I'd be there. Without it, I'd just be the guy talking about a car that isn't there. No thanks, already experienced that.

        I was the newest valet working so I got last pick at the hours on the schedule. That meant I worked until 12 AM the night before and was expected to be in by 6 AM for the next shift so I received latest and earliest. I was there on time, despite my roughly four hours of sleep.

        The cars were way out back and you had to run from the front to the back. You get tired after the morning rush and I did get tired. While pulling a car up I yawned and wasn't paying attention and just tapped a van in front of me trying to make room for a car pulling up in back. No damage or anything but the lady came out and started making a scene about how I put her family in danger and could have killed her blah blah blah.

        The manager comes out and the lady starts yapping so I finally just go, "Yeah $#@!. I saw your stupid ugly kid and decided this was finally my chance to run into a car with an infant which has been my lifelong dream you dumb [explative deleted]." I walked over to where we pooled the tips, grabbed all the money since I knew I would be fired, told everyone to suck it, and went home. At no point did the manager stand up for me or take into account that their own stupid hour policy that abused the newest valets maybe wasn't the smartest. Didn't get my check for the week but hey it made my day to see the guys who were working there when I was there 11 years ago are still working there believe it or not.

        Oh and those guys would all steal change out of the cars cupholders or things like phones that were left in plain sight. I never did any of that as I saw no reason to try to make a few extra dollars in dimes and nickels a night.

        But back on topic...

        I'm not sure what the weight of the car is but just doing some paper calculations. Note these are not an exact science but simply somewhere in the ballpark.

        HP is probably around ~1090 if the weight is around 3800 pounds.

        Also, this mile per hour is good for an 8.9 but it will take a hell of a launch. I mean we all see 8 second capability here but realistically it will likely take more power with this suspension setup or more suspension/weight work. It's a realistic goal though.
