    Um Weistec didn't want anyone talking about this before the video was up.

    I know all about the DA and the slips are sitting in my inbox.

    the fronts look a lot wider than the rears, which seems backwards for a drag racer. now if someone could custom make a removable seat setup, maybe pull the ac too

    with weight reduction, blown out rear fenders (like shaq had on his sl500), some carbon fiber components, perhaps a true drag-spec tranny... could hit 7's on a good day. i'm assuming he has or can afford a beater.

    It so crazy to see a MB that fast and also sounds that mean. Congrats JRCART. Great to see you driving your own car and not your builder.

    This car is one of many toys JRCART owns.

    It has weight stripped out. 7's is very optimistic and beyond the blower's capability IMO but it will run 8's.

    He's located in Chicago and Weistec is in Santa Ana, California. Not that your cheap shots don't come across. I see you do not criticize when Weistec does drive his cars, interesting. Click here to enlarge

    when i was into car parts (~15-20 yrs ago), nobody in single digits considered keeping the car streetable. drag shoes, tow trucks, and plastic windows were a given

    Congratulation Weistec and JRcart. That was an epic pass to be remembered for the ages. I was one of those who thought that it was impossible for any Mercedes to break into the 9's. And if it did, it would have needed to be equipped with NOS ( exactly like the SLR's from Renntech). Now we have an M156 tearing it in the low 9's. Very very impressive. JRcart, your the man, hands down. This is the first Mercedes to break Into the low 9's, and from the way things are looking, it will remain like this for quite a while. Again congrats.

    Hey guys thanks for the kind words. Based on a few of the comments I can see there are a few of you that are not all too familiar with a CLK63 Black Series or my CLK63 Black Series which is understandable since it is such a rare car and I have not been posting on here much as of late. First off the Black Series comes from the factory with widened fenders, I am running factory stock fenders. I converted from a steel to cf roof and hood. AC has been stripped from the car. I am running lightweight race seats, two of them. Car has factory glass windows and power windows. Car still has navigation and radio installed. Car has gone on a pretty good diet but is still only about 200 pounds lighter than stock, 5 he blower unit, plumbing and full roll cage add up quickly. This car has evolved over the years, during the last round of work Weistec suggested a full blown weight reduction, strip everything but I wanted to keep this a real street car and not just a stripped out race car. I think what I have is a happy medium between a full blown racer and a true full weight street car. Obviously the race harnesses and cage are NHRA mandated equipment so at a glance the interior may appear to be race than street but I can assure everyone that most of the stock interior is intact and there were about 10 other guys from an MB forum at the track yesterday that checked the car out and can vouch for the car still having a nearly stock interior.

    As for who drives my car, it's usually me but Steve from Weistec also drives it during shakedown runs and debugging runs. We both drove the car yesterday but the 9.16 was achieved by Steve, I ran the 9.19. Also ran some 9.5's and 9.6's yesterday. Actually every run we made yesterday with the exception of beat the old world record. The fact that Gintani runs Stickys car is no big deal, it is actually pretty common for tuners to drive a car, to shake it down, get a first hand feel for how it performs in a real world situation. I personally feel safer planting my ass in the seat of a car knowing the builder has enough confidence in its safety to do the same. 150mph trap speeds are no joke, you can get killed real quick at those speeds so safety becomes a big concern for all involved.
