    MB AMG SUV? Vs. Stock 05 WRX

    I was heading to a buddy's house last night, when this guy in a black AMG mercedes SUV, i dont know what exact model it was (not the g-wagon), but he looked like he wanted to race, so i gave in to the devil and got ready to launch. The light took forever but finally turned green and since ive launched my 03 and new one a few times, i got a pretty good slip and took off. Too my suprise i actually had him for about 10-15 seconds. Then out of hell came these horrid xenon headlights. OMG that thing was rediculous and sounded pretty good too. I had my windows down and at about 80-90 he was past me by about 2 cars and pulling hard. I gave up obviously and met him at the next light. He rolled down his window and was pretty cool, he told me "nice car", "that little things pretty quick". Before the light turned green he also replied "I'll meet you back here tomarrow night with my E55, i chipped it" and i replied "yeah, ill bring my sport bike". I like people who are cool like that.

    I think it was this one.

    While the base model non-AMG's are slow as balls, the AMG's are pretty quick and have some nice topend. Just swapping an ECU in there will do wonders for the torque and topend. There is a vid floating around here of a lightly modded AMG SUV pulling an STi at high speeds.

    hmm, i raced an ml amg a couple of months back on lake shore drive. the guy had his girl with and i had mine. he gets next to me and punches it, i wasnt expecting him to race, but i downshift and get next to him. At about 30-40 mph we both hit it, and i had no problem, i probably had a good 2-3 cars up to 100mph. He comes up to me and compliments my car and asked me some questions about it, well... whatever i could hear riding next to him at 30mph trying to talk. This was before i got chipped and intaked, just the free exhaust modification.
