    • New C63 AMG and M156 1/4 mile record - 10.78 @ 131mph

      Another record was set by an MHP car at the MIR drag strip this weekend. BenzBoost member Dodger63 pushed further into the 10's by running 10.78@131. This is an increase of 7 miles per hour of trap speed over his previous 10 second slip which is incredible. We have the slip here and will have further details with pictures posted later in the week. Congratulations to Dodger63 and to MHP, raising their already high C63 performance mark even higher.

        Ok, posted about this on the front page but not sure of the mod list.

        What is accounting for the 7 mph increase in trap speed from the previous 10 second slip? 7 mph is no joke.

        Sticky,

        We went over this before Click here to enlarge Mike on 1/6/11 trapped 131 six times, 130mph, seven times, all in the 10s. See M156 forum Click here to enlarge

        Mike's changes were going back to stock airboxes from Gruppe M (change is otw but wasn't ready), MHP 3" Race Catback.

        Working on editing vids now. I'll provide a complete write up of the days events worthy of the front page by tomorrow.

        Thanks

        Sorry, I read a ton of posts and don't remember every detail about all them.

        Was that run just lower because he hooked well?

        Thanks, would really appreciate that writeup. Saves me time as 3 front pages / blogs to maintain is really a ton of work.

        http://www.benzboost.com/showthread....10.9-131.78mph!!!!

        Yeah his 60's were incredible especially considering the air. 1.58-1.59 in a car with 2.85 rear gearing lol. His traps were just as astonishing as last time out DA was -1000', this time +500-1250'.

        These guys work hard to optimize their setups. All the credit in the world to Hagi, Mike and Craig. They are like a well oiled machine.

        So the stock airbox was better than the Gruppe M? Or the Gruppe M does not provide all that much benefit? Maybe hard to say because of the Catback?

        Mods put on the car:
        Mhp custom tune
        Mhp headers
        Mhp race exhust
        Mhp thermal gaskets
        Mhp thermometer

        Evosport rotors
        Sparco evo 3 seat

        Vis carbon trunk

        Since last track day:

        Rear evosport rotors

        -38 rear seats
        -12 rotational mass evosport breaks

        Changed some suspension setup ride height and dampning

        This car is a beast it will do better it has more in it

        Plus with Craig there watching every detail of every launch shift so on.. we picked up on a few let's say launch procedures that in the last 20 min of the rental really started to pay off.. A fresh set off tire and another day maybe better da and this car is going to fly

        Thank you, that clears it up for me. In the 1/4 mile database there was just that one run (since it is the 10 second pass) and I did not have others for reference.

        It works as has been objectively proven by other members (dodger included) like Harun etc, I think he's working on something that works better just wasn't ready in time. Click here to enlarge

        I have a compilation of over approx. 60 10 second slips with each one on different days getting faster and quicker it's been pretty linear since the start of this run. I'll try to get a few pics from each day for u guys to see the progression
