    Weistec Stage III supercharged C63 1/4 mile times from Japan

    This was sent to me an I found it interesting, great elapsed time. Trap speed translates to about 124 miles per hour, straight pump gas:

    1. Weistec Stage 3 SC
    2. MHP Long Tube
    3. "First" orginal center pipe (X-pipe)
    4. Ice Box
    5. Advan Wheel
    6. Drag Tire
    7. Regular pump gas

    I'm sure someone is going to point it out but that 60 foot number obviously is wrong. Definitely not NHRA approved equipment and possibly in need of calibration but the other numbers all look spot on.

    124mph doesnt equate to 10.65 on a C63.

    Uh yes it does... 124 mph is plenty for a 10.65.

    Of course it does....I just wanted to see how SLS was going to explain how he was so sure that the 2 numbers didn't add up.

    Not for the weight of the C63. @Dodger63 tapped 130 for his 10.6 run. 125 would be around 10.9 at best. Check out @Mthis run. Look at dragtimes.com alll C63's tapping 10.7 and below have run at least 130.

    A weistec stage 3 C63 would always tap over 130 whether it would be at the track or on the street. We have tested both my brother's SL63 and @Sirex63 Weistec stage 3 cars and they both tapped above 130mph on the VBOX


    That C63 above tapped above 130. The 125mph recording I believe is incorrect just like the 1.0s 60ft is.

    It doesn't work like that, it's completely based on the 60 foot.

    Because one person runs 10.6@130 doesn't mean everyone will run the same mph for that trap.

    The weight of the C63 isn't the factor here as much as the launch.

    It is true though that this slip is hard to trust due to the clear 60 foot reading error. This is why I prefer American strips that have NHRA standards.

    I understand that, but I dont think its possible that a 125 trap speed gets a C63 to a 10.6. Stage 3 cars tap 130mph+. Perhaps @Weistec can confirm this

    I keep saying 125mph all the time when its actually 124. I dont think any C63 in the world tapped in the 10 second range while trapping 124mph.

    I agree on the trap speed Stage III cars are capable of, definitely 130+.

    That said, in drag racing, the elapsed time is all about the first 60 feet. You'll notice a lot of heavy American rear wheel drive cars with far less power than this C63 even running 9's due to the launch.

    124-125 miles per hour can get you this elapsed time even in a C63. More realistically I agree it should happen at a higher trap especially with this Stage III setup but that doesn't mean it can't happen as it most certainly can.

    This whole slip is just funky.

    I don't think so either.

    I believe you have a good point in regards to the C63. @Sticky is also right about the launching info. 125 is good enough for a 10.65 on some cars.

    The car 60' better than mine by 5/10
    The car 330' better than mine by 1/10
    Overall my car ends up more than 6/10s faster

    Joe, do you think at you can rely on any part of that time slip when there is an overall delta of MORE than a second?

    Do you have a video to back ths up?

    My guess is that it was a tempory timing system not set up correct....so you cannot believe any of it.

    There's no way to know for certain.

    It is what it is, a slip from Japan from a car running their Stage III setup.

    I'd look at this more as an impressive showing to how global the reach of the Weistec product is rather than as a slip to reference.

    I believe the Elapsed time is most likely correct. Though the detailed Parameters , like my bro @SLS AMG, is where I have doubts

    ^ This. With data that is questionable at best drawing any sort of conclusion is pointless.
