    Renntech raises the M157 tuning bar even higher setting a new record by running 11.2@126 in a C218 CLS63 AMG

    Congratulations yet again to Renntech. Not too long ago a Renntech tuned CLS 63 AMG ran 11.3@125 which stood for almost 2 months as the M157 record. The record is now 11.2@126 with a run in negative density altitude at Palm Beach International Raceway. The vehicle was listed as running on slicks and we do not know the fuel but assume race gas. Regardless, well done. 10's are right around the corner for this platform which is just barely getting warmed up.

    10's with just a tune, some cold air, and drag radials is absurd.

    that's what I was gonna say...upgraded turbos, full race exhaust a tune and this thing is gonna be ridiculous.
    I may have to trade my S550 in for one of these...

    I hear you. Wish this motor went into something lighter but perhaps my next ride will have one especially if the tuning continues at this pace.

    We don't know yet. I would assume there will be depending on how hard you abuse it. Renntech ups the torque big time and has been good so far but this is still early.

    The only kink to be worked out is running 10's tune only.
