    Some pics of the SLR, SLS, and SL65 Black Series I took

    Was invited to the Benz dealer today and snapped a few photos while there. The SLS is ridiculously hot in person, photos do not do it justice. It is surprisingly small on the inside. I don't see anyone over 6'2 being able to sit in this car. It is very easy to hit your head on the doors getting in or out. It feels like you are in a cockpit when inside, interior is very nice. The doors are definitely the best part.

    Just bought this one Click here to enlarge It does great photos the dealer just has huge glass windows and the sun was at a position that made the lightning bad.

    This pic illustrates it well:

    Nice shots Sticky.

    ECU (Bosch ME 2.7.2) and TCU (EGS 53) from SL65 BS tuned last week:

    You need 2 BDMs and 1 byteshooter tool to do the ECU by itself, there are 3 files on it alone. Plus one for the EGS/Trans.

    PITA read/write!

    What are the results? The car is already reaching the limits of the trans stock, isn't it?

    He's waiting on R compound tires and new wheels to come in, so the car is sitting presently.

    I'm sure he'll dyno it, when he gets them in; he owns a dyno as well.

    The stock trans will live (not for 100k but I don't think anyone with SL65 BS will ever hit that mark) with proper TCU remapping. That's why ECU only 65s/600 drop the tranny out of the car, you have to tune the trans to handle the extra power/torque or it's simply not going to last.


    Thanks

    Aren't there guys who have built these trans?

    Why not build it and just let all the torque loose?

    Yes we work with Paramount Performance, they build the WA5A's into 900rwhp+ range, with matching driveline components like TQ converters, driveshafts, etc.

    This is phase 1 of his build, honestly you just spin past 120mph as is. He will be upgrading to our larger turbos, then retuning, and then we'll see what blows. He's silly rich, but he's also very experienced with builds/racing so he's going step by step and testing.

    Thanks

    That sounds like a hell of a project to get to play with, do not doubt at all that he is silly rich.

    I guess when you have a dyno installed in your home garage you have to be taken somewhat seriously Click here to enlarge
