    • New C63 AMG and M156 V8 1/4 mile record - 10.87@131! Congratulations to MHP and Dodger63

      A new 1/4 mile record for quickest and fastest C63 and overall 63 amg was set at the MIR dragstrip by dodger63. This is an absolutely phenomenal time and an incredible achievement especially when one factors in this was done all on the motor, no nitrous or other power adder. The modifications are as follow: MHP tuning V3 CDT, MHP long tube headers , modified airbox, and drag radials along with race gas. Congratulations once again to MHP and dodger63 for a stunning new record and raising the bar!

        Yea, all cars were on dr's or slicks yesterday. It was a requirement to run lol. I didn't want street tires screwin up the prep. And like you said there were 2 ZR1's there (arguably the 2 best ZR1 drivers out there)

        exactly my point I would much rather buy a z06 then a zr1... zr1 must be geared wrong or something the car just does not perform like 130hp more then a z06. Id would do intake tune exhaust and intake manifold on the z06

        i guess my memory was off. I feel like the drag tire time for the zr1 at MIR was only .1 or .2 seconds quicker as well. I havent looked in a while, but feel like a while ago it was 10.9 street and 10.7 drags. And I think the Z06 did 10.9 on streets ?
        Z06 did 10.9 on stock runflats.

        The stock ZR-1 hit 10.6 on drag radials, maybe lower now.

        The Z06 is a much better value but the ZR-1 most definitely is much faster. You just do not see the difference as much in negative DA which benefits the Z06 more than the ZR-1 which forces air in.

        I think tire/suspension/chassis limitations on launch really hurt the ZR-1 as well, I mean how much more power over a Z06 can it put to the ground from a dig? Plus we're comparing stock (not even tuned) ZR-1s against a header/tune/catback Z06 which isn't really fair.

        Two badass cars, just different flavors.

        Yet another reason why Ahmad's rentals rock.

        Well not just a header tune catback z06, also the one that ran high 10's and 129 stock. But yes, on this day the Z06 was modded that was running I understand that.

        The ZR-1 is tough to launch, no doubt, but it clearly is a faster car than the Z06. The ZR-1's monster torque early on works against it (as if the Z06 did not have monster torque, but you understand what I'm saying compared to the ZR-1).

        Could we get the Vette slips up somehow? I don't want to take away from the achievement just curious.

        Im just saying it is pointless in all reason to buy a zr1 over a z06 new its 40k more for nothing in performance wise. My point is with a tune and intake and the right tire you can still retain your warranty and be dead even mph and et with zr1s. the zr1 fails in my book/

        You do get something performance wise. If you want to go beyond certain power levels the ZR-1 makes more sense as it is low compression already and forged. So if FI is your goal it makes sense unless you are going to build the LS7.

        Look, I'm with you, I would buy the Z06 over the ZR-1 as well. I would prefer the displacement increase, the higher redline, as well as the brute naturally aspirated power. I would give it an aggressive cam and enjoy the hell out of it being faster than stock ZR-1's.

        However, the ZR-1 is a statement car and the best value in performance next to the other best value in performance, the Z06.

        The ZR-1 doesn't fail, it just shows how impressive the Z06 was to begin with.

        Ok how much less does the clk63 black series weight? My cousin has one and if he can get that thing in the mid tens with full bolt ons he will do it!

        Yes its possible! The black weighs about 80lbs more than the c63. The other issue will be the suspension on the black, oem is not set up for best weight transition that is needed in good/great 1320 times. Where he runs will also have significant impact in the times he produces. The question I did not research is the difference between the gearing in both the c63 and the black.

        It will not be as easy as the c based on the issues above but it is possible. I can see the black hitting high tens consistently with weight loss and MHP LT/Tune/Catback, a good air intake, tires and suspension tuning. Going mid 10's would take MHP Cams I believe. If he is interested he can contact Andy or I. Thanks!

        The only CLK63 to run 10's did it with nitrous, not sure if we ever even got that slip to prove it either.

        really the clk is heavier wtf. He already has a carbon fiber hood and trunk and recaro pole positions. and a 10lbs battery he took it to some rd racing track meets. But has always been a drag enthusiast at heart.

        I think it's important to note that the DA when dodger was running was only -1000'. That's not exactly great as far as MIR goes as they have seen -3500' on more than one occassion in winter racing. So the cars there that day racing are definitely more comparable as far as data goes vs the 10/129 stocker.

        Yes, too hard to launch, needs real LC.

        Nope, no vids either, we are all calling BS on this car now. Slips and vids were supposed to be posted if another m156 ran 10.8s N/A, well we did, where are the vids?

        Absolutely true.
