    Jim might be abrasive at times but lets give him and Weistec some much deserved credit. The car is an absolute beast regardless if you have issues with the owner. As a community we would all love to know the exact mods/boost on the vehicle but if the owners chooses not to disclose that is his prerogative.

    Just my .02
    How much more credit does one get than the front page? It's a fun article people are taking it negatively as if everything has to be negative when associated with someone who does nothing but spew negativity. I had fun with it, stated it was a great comparison, simple as that.

    But that is my point. Jim, Earl and Even Weistec have said that they have new stuff being developed that they are currently testing and was being employed on the CLK in the video posted here. We all know this. So, to say that technically what you wrote is 100% accurate is not very....well, accurate.
    And just because you were not told does not mean it doesn't exist. Most journalists seek out information and make sure they are 100% accurate before printing something. They don't wait around to be told.

Jim, Earl and Weistec have said many times that these new developments on the CLK will be released in due time. Speculating about it while discrediting the owner seems a bit spiteful on your part.
    I'd strongly consider revising it.
    Saying someone is difficult to deal with, when they are, and they equating the way they talk about their car in a clearly exaggerated fashion to the highest of government secrecy is something called a joke.

    If ANY spec is wrong the comments exist to correct me. I see nothing yet and when I do I will correct until then those are the specs I am going with as they are the last known specs to be 100% accurate. I'm not going to guess.

    No revision will take place I think people are being WAY too sensitive when it comes to this and if you want a nice heartfelt article when it's your car I'd strongly suggest remembering that before insulting the guy who will be writing it across the website that he owns. It's not like I spit in his food but if an owner of a restaurant did after this guy behaved like a brat in it throwing over tables and insulting the staff I wouldn't be surprised and it may even be warranted.

    Nuclear launch codes, that $#@!'s funny.

    Unless you know it is not accurate you are guessing. For all we know his changes are a suspension change. The car I have seen several times and I have asked about several times. I can only write what I know.

    I think JR creates suspicion and curiousity about whats been done to his car or what is being tested and eventually it comes out once its ready to go onto Weistec's catalog.
    As for the secrecy of your car we will leave that for another topic or maybe soon we will see the mother of all build threads. At the moment you also put out bait the same way JR does with comments like "pump fuel record" but no figure.
    Don't know why the users of the board should be cock teased in this manner when they provide equal content that is factual and not in riddles. End of the day the path taken to do a build is far more interesting than the result for most enthusiasts.

    No such thing as a ban because the site automatically gives users points. This isn't the place to discuss site policies any further discussion on any neg reps will be deleted and your account will be adjusted accordingly with said policies.

    And also to any of you complaining if Weistec wants any changes they always get any changes they want and I can't remember any single time they were refused. If they're cool with it, I'm cool with it. It's a car forum people and this is a run comparison video. Some blog posts are lighthearted, others serious, a wide variety of topics are covered. Product releases often get a different tone. Lighten up and if someone can't post TEMPORARILY they can thank themselves. If it was any other site they would be banned and the users wouldn't be able to do anything about it.

    Oh I got the joke - my point is that journalistically it has no place in the article. Unless of course you have an axe to grind. Seems I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    So when you write an article about my car, or Jims car you are doing us a favor when all it does is drive traffic to your site ? How about at the NFZ event when Jim allowed you to sit in his C63 BS and video the run from inside the car while asking questions....you were doing him a favor or was he really allowing you to gather content for you site ? Seems like the latter to me.

    I know 100% for a fact that it is inaccurate.

    You do know that there are parts on the CLK that have been in development and are close to being announced, right ? If that is the case, then you are guessing when you wrote the tech specs.

    I think people are taking it in a negative way because of the recent animosity between the two of you. If you say it was for fun, I'm cool with that.

    You think I won't be posting a figure? Maybe I have so many articles in the queue that I can't just post everything at once? Would it really be interesting to have every article for a week on one day? No, something new every single day for each make is what I strive for and why I'm on here basically 24/7.

    The secrecy is fine, not my car but I can't talk about specs if I don't know them I can just talk about the specs I know. So when comparing the two setups I just wrote what I knew. Like it's hard to tell me, "oh hey that's not right" and then what? I won't change it?

    Well I can see how much my build was appreciated by this person you are defending. Like I ever disparaged this by making a joke in the manner that was done to me. Why don't I try some of that behavior and let's see how the forum responds? But oh, oh, because this guy happens to have a setup similar to yours that makes it somehow ok?

    The article is up, all coverage and posts proceed as normal, and if someone wants to participate here they should probably maintain a standard of decency. Too bad money doesn't buy you rep points... or class.

    Cool then we're good. If I was being spiteful nothing would be up in the first place. I chose this to put up first because I found it the most interesting.

    That's exactly how I'm reading it, too. Kicking a guy when he's down....after YOU put him down just ain't cool in my book.

    Not kicking anyone when they are down never been my style or personality and he put himself down. You're cool with that behavior? I'm not and well end of that. Time to move on.

    Sorry I didn't realize your pump gas record figure would be a front page article. Didn't think so far. No sarcasm.
    I didn't really defend Jim as I said he creates interest and is also a cock tease. The whole mob did jump in though so its obvious it was in bad taste, wonder what it would take to put your rep in the red.
    In regard to the article, I am on your side. You wrote what you know at the time of writing. The 5 speed comment was a booboo. The race was one of the most anticipated cross forum races and bringing in the comedy you decided to bring in should have been put aside in my opinion.
    So chillax no one else called you a pussy.

    Well I found this one more interesting and a BMW race was already posted early this morning which people wanted to see considering the N54 bias so the next race will likely be that one. But you may notice since a BMW race was posted an article was needed for the Benz section and so this slotted in perfectly to avoid redundancy which I'm sure you thought of.

    Let me stick to running the site, thanks.
