    • 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.

        Amazing pass. Congrats @JRCART. Nicely done. Yes 8 seconds is achievable since the car is trapping near 156mph

        Sticky, my previous 9.7 record was only the fastest trap record, Renntech held the ET record with their nitrous powered SLR, I beleive that record was a 9.66. Either way I now hold the quickest and fastest.

        Still interested in running this car with your M3?

        Ok, you are in luck, I am going to be running in an event in Vegas this summer, you can come out to Vegas and run me. Event is late July and takes place late at night so its cooler, but I could care less about conditions since we will be running side by side on same track in same conditions and we both have FI motors. See you then.....no excuses. Bring cash

        HAHA....

        Lets see what kind of excuses Sticky comes up with this time. I am bringing the car over 3/4 of the way to him and giving him nearly 11 weeks notice. There should be no reason he can not make it to this event to run my CLK.

        I think this works. I hope you bring that $50k.

        Give me the exact dates and times please.

        You will have a very loud response from me soon which I am sure you will be made aware of.

        That said, I think it disrespects your tuner and takes away from the achievement to drag this thread off topic. Make a thread for the event where things can be discussed. A new world record achieved by a car built by a network premier vendor and tuner means this thread will be moderated in a strict and professional manner. That goes for everyone. Weistec pays to have their engineering seen, not for flame fests.

        I'll already be there partying the day before.

        Is there a name for this event? Is this a private rental?

        It is called Midnight Madness or something like that, go to their website, its basically a test and tune with a Mopar bracket event attached to it. Earl and I have run the event in the past. I think you were there with us for the event one year.

        Hey Jim - first of all - congratulations!!!

        having the fastest anything in the world is a pretty big achievement!

        This is Jeremy - we met at the Michigan Mile last July - I drove the GMG R1K GTR.

        I am am most impressed with your ET's - but most importantly your trap speeds.
        If you have more on tap - your car is easily into the 8's.

        Hi Jeremy, I hope all is we and thank you. Are you doing the Michigan Mile again this year with you monster? I am going back and forth on it, being over the 4th of July makes it really difficult as I have two young kids and a wife. If I do end up going it will be for just one day and I will be running this car(CLK) As you know I ran my C Black Series up there last year and went 194. I have gone 187mph with this car(CLK) at a 1/2 mile with 200 less whp than it is making now so the engineers at Weistec figure this CLK should be good for 225+ in the mile the way it sits.

        If younare going to Michigan Mile what day(s) are you running?
