    New Mercedes 1/4 mile South African Records

    We took 3 of our cars to the dragstrip on Sunday. 2 x C63's and a CLS55.

    To give you some background info, here in South Africa we dont have a proper dragstrip at the coast.
    So this event is held at an unused airstrip and is sanctioned by our Mototsport Governing Body (MSA).
    No track prep, etc. We also dont get 60 ft times, so we use V-Box to measure this.

    Best 60ft for the C63's was a 1.8sec (V-Box)

    These are the runs for the day :

    Silver C63 (Me)

    08/07/2012 09:10 Left Lane 8B40, A BHAVESH VALA 11.839 204.000 km/h

    The 2 C63 have the following mods:
    Headers + Exhaust with stock rear boxes, Evosport Pulley, Evosport Intake Spacer, Braille Batteries (21lbs), 2 Race seats in front, 17" Hoosier DR's and Motronix software upgrade.

    These are the videos from the best runs for the 3 cars on the day :

    I heard about your headers and how good they are. 4-1 , do you use a 3inch system?

    And what tune files are you using, if you don't mind me asking

    I have a custom 83mm pipe (not sure what the inch size is).

    Tune is from a local South African company - Motronix.

    No fancy race tune, etc. The file I run everyday with pump fuel is the same file I run at the track.

    Also have handheld flasher to swop between tunes / stock files. This takes 38 seconds to complete.

    That track you made your runs in was in Durbin. According to Intellicast.com and using the same da calculator like you did.

    The DA calculated: 356

    And if you ran anytime after 6:30pm the DA would have been: -222

    Those are all favorable conditions.
