• New quickest C63 AMG and M156 1/4 mile record - 10.3 @ 134 MPH

      WOW! The records just keep up on falling. Here is the first C63 AMG to break into the 10.3 range setting a new quickest 1/4 mile record in the process. By now everyone should be familiar with Keith's C63 (goes by the name DadsC63). Car has MHP modifications and nitrous. To be noted, this pass would done Bradenton Motorsports Park which is in Florida. This could very well have been a new overall Mercedes record at MIR. Congratulations to DadsC63 and MHP, more details to come, stay tuned.

        Air was HEAVY last night and even with NOS its better with the negative DA. Florida gets humid and heavy air and that does hurt overall.
        Ben did a great job and we'll make the trip back up north when they get better weather.
        The nitrous does come in at 3,000 rpms but remember that most of the 60' is without the NOS so better air does help early in the run.
        We'll keep dialing her in as time allows.

        Thanks for the kudo's guys!!

        Very Crappy!! I think the best was 11.21 @ 125xx. Click here to enlarge

        However, we didn't have all day to keep running her back to back to try to improve. We made one group of runs N/A and went on to nitrous.

        Yeah, thats what I was saying with how much RPM is used before the NOS. Better DA will surely help in the RPM when not spraying. 3K is a very low RPM however before the NOS kicks in. Id say you are very much above 3K before the 60' mark. Not really sure though... shed any light at what RPM your at or think your at hitting the 60'?

        No question humidity is the worst thing the track. Im sure you can get some better time in Neg DA. It definitly cant hurt! Click here to enlarge Did you make any other changes since MIR that you care you share?


        Congrats on the new C63 record! Click here to enlarge

        I sure do. Ive been called Propain for a long long time now... Dont ask... lol

        Anything given by AMG you gotta keep so I hear ya! Click here to enlarge

        No question nitrous mitigates poor air quality very well. That said MIR is clearly a quicker and faster track than Bradenton this time of year especially and we have little doubt that changing venues will have a positive impact on the results next time. Although as you stated "DA in a bottle" air quality does play a role as you typically see most NOS motors pop when the DA goes negative--too lean. We have a few other small tricks up our sleeve which will hopefully put us over the hump so to speak. Ok enough predicting, we'll see what happens next time out Click here to enlarge

        Im sure you guys will keep getting better and better!

        You have to make it down to MIR sometime Mike!

        That is an amazing time&one can only speculate as to what this beast would run under ideal negative D/A at MIR/Atco on a nice cool October day...9.9x-10.0 is my guess if not quicker
        That is what I was thinking when I heard Florida.

        Not as much of an effect but DA is still a large factor with nitrous or forced induction, etc.

        Congrats to MHP, Keith, and Ben. MHP continues to produce for the Mercedes market. It is undeniable that the MHP team creates quality products. The numbers just don't lie. If you've never had the opportunity to drive a car with an MHP tune, you don't know what you're missing.

        Jim,
        I am counting on you for that. I am about tapped out for this season due to where I live and the challenges of Florida AIR, HUMIDITY, and HEAT!!

        Come on Jim - get that beast dialed in!! Click here to enlarge
