    Thumbs up Vids: chief63's MHP Tuned C63 at Mont-Tremblant

    Ok so everyone must think, who goes to a race track on Friday the 13? Well I do, and apparently a whole bunch of people too!

    This spring and winter I did a lot of modifications to the car to improve its track performance. Last summer the brakes were fading and pads toasting, tires not gripping enough and I wasn't able to put the power down. So overall, the car was ok on the track but not great.

    Well this year things have changed!

    Previous mods:

    - MB arts strut bar
    - KW V3
    - Evosport rotors
    - Brigestone Potenza RE-11 (245/18 and 165/18)
    - Stainless steel brake lines
    - CLK 63 black series pads
    - evosport titanium shims in front

    New mods:

    - OS Giken LSD
    - MHP V3 tune
    - Forgestar F14 wheels (18")
    - Nitto NT01 (245/18 and 275/18)
    - Hawk DTC 70 front and Raybestos St-43 back

    Well I must say the car is night and day on the track. The differential is amazing exiting out of corners, the power increase is great, I love the Nitto NT01, and the pad combination is killer, no fade at all.

    The only small issues I have is that the tires are slightly rubbing in the back (sometimes) and that the AMG brakes in front are now goldish instead of silver (a lot of heat). I don't really mind the look!

    Enjoy my first videos the season taken at Mont-Tremblant, great track with great people too

    DadsC63, Dodger, and HHughes are all avid road racers as well having been to Road Atlanta, Sebring, Roebling Road, Homestead, Pocono, etc. All have open track videos linked to our Youtube account which is also linked off the main page of our site www.modernhorsepower.com. There are hours of footage of just open track racing.

    Thanks

    That is absolutely true, just saying it is nice to see some road racing vs. the proclivity for drag racing this forum has.
