    Lets see what kind of excuses Sticky comes up with this time. I am bringing the car over 3/4 of the way to him and giving him nearly 11 weeks notice. There should be no reason he can not make it to this event to run my CLK.

See you then.....no excuses. Bring cash
    I think this works. I hope you bring that $50k.

    Give me the exact dates and times please.

    You will have a very loud response from me soon which I am sure you will be made aware of.

    That said, I think it disrespects your tuner and takes away from the achievement to drag this thread off topic. Make a thread for the event where things can be discussed. A new world record achieved by a car built by a network premier vendor and tuner means this thread will be moderated in a strict and professional manner. That goes for everyone. Weistec pays to have their engineering seen, not for flame fests.

    I'll already be there partying the day before.

    Is there a name for this event? Is this a private rental?

    It is called Midnight Madness or something like that, go to their website, its basically a test and tune with a Mopar bracket event attached to it. Earl and I have run the event in the past. I think you were there with us for the event one year.

    Hey Jim - first of all - congratulations!!!

    having the fastest anything in the world is a pretty big achievement!

    This is Jeremy - we met at the Michigan Mile last July - I drove the GMG R1K GTR.

    I am am most impressed with your ET's - but most importantly your trap speeds.
    If you have more on tap - your car is easily into the 8's.

    Hi Jeremy, I hope all is we and thank you. Are you doing the Michigan Mile again this year with you monster? I am going back and forth on it, being over the 4th of July makes it really difficult as I have two young kids and a wife. If I do end up going it will be for just one day and I will be running this car(CLK) As you know I ran my C Black Series up there last year and went 194. I have gone 187mph with this car(CLK) at a 1/2 mile with 200 less whp than it is making now so the engineers at Weistec figure this CLK should be good for 225+ in the mile the way it sits.

    If younare going to Michigan Mile what day(s) are you running?

    Yeah I remember the trailers hence my confusion. I need a place to put my stuff.

    I don't get it though, is there a reason you're running in Vegas in the Middle of July in a Mopar event?

    If younare going to Michigan Mile what day(s) are you running?
    I am actually chickening out I think lol. Unless my tuner wants to run my car - these recent issues with mega builds losing control has spooked me a bit.

    My car is being built right now - I found a home for my previous engine and have gone Alpha 16 - which is about 1600 awhp. I am limited by gearing and more importantly RPM - but I should hit 240 MPH. I just don't think I'm going to go for full mile and stick with 1/2 mile (and 1/4 of course). Tires and just general traction have given me pause.

    My my car last year - without launch - hit 213 (215 on my VBOX) and I was at 32 psi (Switzers car had a record 9.3 at 155 at 35 psi, I did a 9.41 at 155 fully loaded (cage, 3/4 tank and full interior with a 1.62 60 foot). So I think our cars were pretty comparable (I think your car has more power in it though).
    My point is - that build was extremely intense doing a mile in (I honestly think it was more ignorance to what I was doing that got me through that lol).

    If I go - it will be the last day - just like last year. I hear TLC will be there to film part of a documentary if that helps you decide...Click here to enlarge

    Anyways - I am very impressed with what you and your tuner have done: I actually have a 2014 E63 S as a daily and I love it (still stock though...Click here to enlarge

    Good luck and get into those 8's...you have the platform and tune to do it for sure...

    Several reason that I will be out there. A friends bachelor party in Vegas that weekend and I have another money race lined up and then car is going back to Weistec for another phase of mods. No rest for the wicked

    Sounds like you have an insane build under way.

    That E63 S is an amazing car, Steve from Weistec owns one and they have been developing stuff for it since the day they took delivery, they are the leaders in that platformas well. One of my buddies here in Naperville has one and he started off with a Weistec tune which really woke the car up, he has since upgraded to the Weistec downpipes and longtube headers and its a beast. You should consider going with their tune even if its just a daily driver.

    I love my E63 S - amazing car. I have started a crazy build with the GTR and I am quite happy keeping the car stock at least for now (it's a lease so it helps me to stay somewhat firm on that). That said - that never lasts lol...

    Anyways - there is also a 1/2 mile side by side in Michigan as well on June 22nd I believe. I am fairly certain I will be at that. Let me know if you are going to to the Michigan Mile - it would be great to see your car go full out.

    Oh and good luck with Sticky - sounds like it will be a good race...Click here to enlarge

    Congrats Jim, I still remember when you first got this car and wrote about it on MB World back in the day. Awesome job here from Weistec too, really shows what the M156 is capable of.

    Excited to see possible 8s from a Mercedes-Benz street car.

    what chassis work did you do to get it to hook up like that? It seems to come off the line with a well tuned drag setup. It isn't just the tires is it?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    You are going to make easy money that weekend,because there is no way Sticky,s car will make a 9.1sec 1/4mile simple is that.

    there are only a few E36 that are in the eights,i have never heard of a low nine second E9x or even low ten second.

    I think last time he ran it was mid 10's. Joe, if you want to save 6,000 pay me four grand to forfeit the challenge you accepted to race me next Feb.
