    HUH? So you're saying who pays for the mods has any bearing on how impressive the run is ? Makes no sense at all and actually just shows how committed Renntech is to proving their products and backing them up with runs instead of dyno graphs.

    Why would it not be a Mercedes? The motor is basically just a version of what was in the E55. It is more Mercedes than McLaren IMO.

    Exactly, the car did what it did.

    Finding SLR owners willing to drag race and modify their car likely isn't quite so easy.

    I think you misunderstood my post. I'm saying is there nothing you could call a mercedes that can run quicker than a high 9 on a drag strip?

    Yes, I misunderstood. I do not believe there is any faster street Mercedes out there.

    I would be more impressed if a sole human, not a company PR dept., threw that much money at an already expensive car. But that doesn't take away from the performance results. It runs HARD

    in no way am i saying it's not impressive . the car runs like a bat out of hell and that's a great thing to watch . i'm just saying it's more impressive to watch a vehicle , owned by an individual and built with the money of an individual ( Jim , Earl , Keith , etc. ) , to run great numbers and outperform most vehicles out there .

    i give all the credit in the world to Renntech for building this monster Click here to enlarge

    I've seen the car in magazines and online, it's owned by Luxury4play, an online automotive social network. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    i don't think i said that......wait , let me go back and check........

    mmmm.....nope , not what i said . i just said that it would be more impressive if it was privately owned and used and funded by 1 individual . take a look at the site and it says it's a "team collaboration project" , which means it's not funded by 1 private individual for the build . the title to the car may have 1 guys name but hes not the person funding the whole project .

    now , after all that.....congrats , to all involved , in making this SLR a monster

    How do you know that ? How do you know it's NOT one guy funding it all ? The site can use whatever verbage they wish but unless you have firsthand knowledge then I'd say you are simply assuming.
