Motor Trend? Nice work guys! Way to bring the issue to light.
09-24-2011, 02:35 PM
Gotcha, thanks for the correction.

amg allegedly revised the heads 4 times which did nothing so in all likelihood based on the info above reg model years 2008-2010 they probably decided that they couldnt come up with a cost effective...

Consider this as well. The average MB let alone AMG owner doesn't know how to change his own oil. You think they're going to pick up on something as major as this that shows only minor signs (which...

It's out there, dated and all, you just have to search for it.

No as has been posted this exact issue with exact problems has been cited many times on the net in the past 1.5 years or more. I was one of the people talking about it then and still am now. It's...
While an engineering "masterpiece" less the 6 cylinders spooling vs 8 (no doubt due to the super small turbos used knowing they weren't going to put much boost into it) Weistec mops the floor with...

You are correct, and as _AMG_ stated you would just need the axle back.

As posted the M156 has major design flaws, enough so that MB took power away from AMG to go clean-sheet with the M157 and brought R&D back in-house again.
The major flaws are:

Thanks for the response, and you are right the BS does have a supp trans cooler and is no doubt from the factory far better suited to a road course. Still you are pushing the envelope hard, no other...

I have a question about open track performance with the supercharger. I was hoping to get the answer from cart but I get that he couldnt swap suspension setups in time.
There are stock...

Last I saw posted by cart on this forum they were SLS, now they are stock 63 meaning there was a change, in either case it's not your fight so please swing from someone else's nads for a bit.

Post 184 interview thread.
Whos laughing now mr vicariously through others?
08-01-2011, 05:57 PM
Like I said days ago you have the reading comp skills of a second grader, then amazingly you say the same thing to me today after I ask a legit question--stock is a relative term in autosports a crew...
08-01-2011, 05:52 PM
Dont tank this thread too lzh. You were wrong, still are wrong and "stock" can mean any factory cam by racing definition so dont get high and mighty, then again are you ever not, about me asking to...
08-01-2011, 05:50 PM
Nice to see you here responding thank you.
Question, why did you switch back to stock cams? Do you think they are more efficient than sls? From what was said in the interview it seems like the...
08-01-2011, 05:48 PM
Makes sense. Look forward to the rd course vids!
08-01-2011, 05:26 PM
Then ask lzh why he said the vids would prove him right. He was counting on it, not me.
08-01-2011, 05:24 PM
One more question cart, vid says stock cams but in the last thread with dynos on here it was posted your car had sls cams, did you switch back to your 63 cams or are they still sls. sls can mean...
08-01-2011, 05:22 PM
Um, it was common knowledge that cart was running SLS cams, what happened? Did they swap them out since the last dyno? Its in that thread if you want to look it up?
08-01-2011, 04:38 PM
Not at all to me, kind of like the "stock cams" claim in the video. Stock 63 or SLS because both are technically stock. Get it?
08-01-2011, 04:34 PM
Read between the lines the car was never ran with the largest pulley so the comment is true.
You also need to tke into account that boost somehow went from 11 to 11.5 to 12 to 13psi and still no...
08-01-2011, 04:27 PM
We know youre literate, thanks for answering. :)
08-01-2011, 04:26 PM
Fair enough thank you for the response. How did you do on the road course? Thats a vid I would love to see no matter how much boost.
08-01-2011, 04:24 PM
Ok watched the in car vid a few times and now have another question, why was carts body jerking to the side on every upshift? Not backward from the force of the power of the car, but sideways? Also...
