• Weistec Engineering sets new quickest and fastest Mercedes-Benz AMG world record with a 9.1 @ 155 1/4 mile pass

      Congratulations are in order to Weistec Engineering for raising the bar and setting a new world record. The previous world's fastest Mercedes-Benz record also set by this same Weistec supercharged CLK63 AMG stood at 9.757 @ 151.95 which was set in November of last year at the ATCO dragstrip in New Jersey. In less favorable conditions at Byron Dragway in Illinois the same Weistec supercharged M156 built motor V8 W209 CLK63 AMG Black Series managed a 9.193 @ 155.11 pass with a 1.550 60 foot time good for a new quickest and fastest Mercedes world record.


      Density altitude at noon was 730 feet above sea level and the temperature was 55.9 degrees. Not the best conditions possible but certainly not terrible either. With zero to negative density altitude the car will run 8's as it sits and some power was dialed out to help the 315/50/16 Mickey Thompson drag radials hook off the line.

      A video and the timeslips are below. Please do not pay attention to the date on the slips it is incorrect. The passes took place on 5/17/2014 not the 5/19/2014 it states which at the time of this writing is actually tomorrow.

      The quickest pass comes on a 150 trap speed with a 9.160 elapsed time and the fastest trap speed is a 155.78 which comes on the worst 60 foot at 1.716. The most telling pass is the 9.193 @ 155.11 slip. An incredible 4.0 second flat 60-130 time was also achieved.

      Congratulations to all involved and at this point Weistec is only competing against themselves. It certainly looks like the first 8 second Mercedes street car will come from Weistec Engineering.

        I'm not sure what the bet is for but seeing how this has mostly been about the transmission, I will make a wager for you.

        I bet you that you cannot go quick (the times like you have already done) with the factory transmission that comes with your car. The transmission does not need to be stock, it needs to be a factory unit. I will bet you $500.00 that you can't do that, does that sound like a fair bet?

        I don't think they have, no. I know they're pretty busy and not sitting on the forums.
