    • Video of the record setting Mercedes 1/4 mile pass by Dads C63

      The video just went up of the record setting Mercedes 1/4 mile run by DadsC63. Car has MHP mods along with a 125 shot of nitrous. It is surprising to see just how smooth and drama free the launch is. The car pull strong through the 1/4 setting a new Mercedes trap speed record. This is officially the quickest and fastest Mercedes in the USA. Congratulations to MHP and DadsC63.

        I think it would hook out of the hole spraying off the converter, and it would definitely knock the 60s down as you can see there wasn't any difference (actually 60'd better on some N/A passes on the 25th) in short times with or without the spray, we just don't want to overstress it...Yet.

        Thank you.

        If your car would hook (I've watched videos of it) it would fly, but I imagine you have all the traction problems in the world.

        Thanks

        Awesome job, Keith Ben and Andy. Kudos for continuing to trailblaze.

        Andy - OT, SuperLubricity (on that other forum) wanted the specifics for your tune-only 11.59, so it could be added to his fastest C63 list. Just FYI, if you want it posted there.

        Thanks Brett! My tune and carbonio airbox (which as proven by hagi and dodger does nothing) C63 went 11.595@119.75 at MIR on 8/22/08 I believe was the date. I only made 6-7 runs that day because we we swapping my wheels and DRs between a few cars. Those were the only 3 mods, tune, DRs, carbonio. I was on Nittos not MTs as well.

        The run is actually still on dragtimes located here:

        Thanks guys, we had a great day racing. Andy (MHP) has done a great job helping us get to where we are!!
        I'm glad Ben can drive because I was wore out and it was his turn.
        We ran over 20 N/A passes before 1:00 and I was done. THANKS BEN!!

        We are still working on the car in hopes to dial in some things and make her a little faster. I think jrcart will force us to get back out racing to maintain any records. Good luck Jim!!

        Hoping to get word on how he did soon.

        Good attitude and good luck, you have really raised the bar and improving on it is not going to be easy.
